Teacher Burnout in Georgia: Voices from the Classroom

The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) commissioned a report on a critical issue facing educators – burnout. The report, released June 16, 2022, authored by a dedicated Teacher Burnout Task Force that includes several PAGE members – Georgia’s Teacher of the Year Cherie Goldman, board member Daerzio Harris, and others – details the extensive challenges confronting the educator workforce.

“The report from the Teacher Burnout Task Force comprehensively addresses the very real challenges faced by Georgia’s educators,” said PAGE Executive Director Craig Harper. “The report confirms feedback and concerns consistently voiced by PAGE members in our annual surveys. Recommendations within the report provide the starting point for solutions our policymakers and school leaders must consider when designing and implementing better supports for those who teach and care for Georgia’s students.”
