From the Paper:

"Just as many people choose to enter the teaching profession for a number of common reasons, a large number of first-career teachers cite a number of the same reasons for wanting to leave the profession. The growing body of research into teacher recruitment and retention has consistently cited pay and benefits as among the most salient reasons many first-career teachers become dissatisfied with the profession, but there are other and perhaps equally compelling reasons involved as well. According to Cockburn and Haydn (2004), "A survey of recent research in this field and reports on teacher job satisfaction and morale show that there is a fairly high degree of consensus about what aspects of teaching are currently preventing teachers from finding their work fulfilling and enjoyable and are acting as disincentives to them remaining in the profession" (p. 18). While the exact rank order of disincentives differs survey to survey and study to study, there is widespread agreement concerning the primary factors that many first-career teachers become disenchanted with the field over time, with many of these issues - but not all -- related to a dearth of resources (Cockburn & Haydn, 2004). Among the most commonly cited factors affecting first-career teachers' decisions to leave the profession are the workload involved, student behavior issues, initiative overload and excessive bureaucracy (Cockburn & Haydn, 2004)."
