The rate of new teachers leaving the system in the first three years is 20% - an increase of almost 2% within a year. The proportion of teachers who left in the first year is 12%, an increase of one percent within a year. The psychometric score of teachers who leave Jewish education is 10 points higher than that of those who remain. This emerges from data on mobility and departure of teachers published by the Central Bureau of Statistics.
The dropout rates are higher among new teachers in high schools than in elementary schools. They are more than twice as high among non-specialized teachers as those who have undergone specialization.
The rates of departure of new teachers were declining in the previous decade. The proportion of teachers leaving in the first year dropped from 15% among teachers who joined in 2001 to 10% in 2011, but since then there has been an increase of 11% among teachers who joined the system in 2015 and 12% among teachers who joined in 2016.
The proportion of teachers who left in the first three years was 24% among teachers who joined the system in 2001. It dropped to 16 percent among teachers who joined in 2006. Ever since he climbed. 18% of the teachers who joined in 2013 left in the first three years and 20% of the teachers who joined in 2014.
The psychometric score of teachers who leave Jewish education is higher by 20 points than those who remain. The score of those who remain is also not very high. Thus, for example, in 2015 the gap was 25 points and the score of those remaining was 534. In 2016 the gap in the psychometric score was reduced to 10 points.
