This is a question we have been pondering for the past several years. In the Bay Area, we experienced steady growth (increase in the number of teachers participating) for many years. For the past several years though, we have trained about 100 new teachers each year yet our overall numbers have remained steady.
For the past two years we have surveyed teachers who have opted out in hopes of learning why they no longer hatch fish. If we can find a cause (or problem), we can attempt to fix it.
The results of our recent efforts can be found in the report below. Please read the report (it is not that long) and let us know what you think.
- Do you agree with our analysis?
- Are we missing something?
- Do you feel additional pressure to perform your job that may preclude you from future participation?
