An alert to Georgia public school teachers: Keep a close watch on these two legislators. First, Jan Jones, R-Milton, Speaker Pro Tem in the House of Representatives, evidently isn't buying a report from State School Superintendent Richard Wood and the Georgia Department of Education that shows 44 percent of new teachers leave the profession within five years and that two out of three teachers surveyed said they were unlikely or very unlikely to recommend teaching as a profession. Jones observed that teachers leaving the classroom is simply a "natural post-recession workforce adjustment."
