It is not hard to see why many Christian school teachers abandon the "calling" they once were emphatic about pursuing. It is not likely the school they have chosen to work for, the students they encounter, or the parents who beckon their call. More often than not, attrition in the Christian school teaching ranks comes down to leadership supervision and properly motivated encouragement toward continued growth.
