Louisiana Teachers Still Retiring In High Numbers

The number of teachers in Louisiana who are making the decision to retire just keeps getting higher.  The rate at which they’re doing so is higher than normal.

More than 7,500 teachers in Louisiana have decided to retire in the last two years.

The number of teachers retiring this year went up again even after the 24 percent increase in 2012.

Teachers Retirement System of Louisiana Assistant Director Dana Vicknair says the amount is up about a 1,000 from what it would usually be.

State Superintendent of Education John White says to him it’s about finances for veteran employees.

Some school superintendents say part of the reason teachers are leaving, they believe, are because of classroom changes including the new teacher evaluation system.
