A new report claims that both the best and the worst teachers are leaving urban school districts at similar rates. It argues that the best teachers are “irreplaceable” – as in, so good that they’re nearly impossible to replace – and that school districts are taking for granted these high-performing teachers and not giving them enough reason to stay in their jobs.

Guest: Timothy Daly, President of TNTP, a nonprofit that helps train and place new teachers in underserved districts.
