What number of educators have left the teaching profession in each province since 1 January 2012?                                                                                                        

Response

57 193 permanently appointed educators resigned between January 2012 and December 2019.  The unusually high numbers of resignations were recorded in 2014 and 2015.  This coincided with the period in which there was uncertainty relating to the changes in pension dispensation.  However, it should be noted that as at February 2020, about 17 800 of the educators who resigned, were back - appointed as educators in schools.
