On the program this week, Teachers of the Year Radio welcomes Jonathan Crossley, a high school English and Drama teacher from the Mississippi Delta region of Arkansas, who is the 2014 Arkansas Teacher of the Year.

Jonathan is known for transformational improvements in student achievement during his teaching career. His students, despite being from extremely disadvantaged conditions, perform well beyond expected levels on state and national standardized measures of achievement. Jonathan is a proud first-generation college graduate who is passionate about educational equity. In this episode, Jonathan talks with us about how crucial teacher retention anddevelopmentcan be to ensuring education equity.

Ever wonder what happens to schools when great teachers leave? While some high-poverty schools have systems in place to attract high-quality teachers to their schools, many struggle to keep their teaching talent from year to year. In schools with large populations of disadvantaged students, teacher turnover can seriously impact learning outcomes. Jonathan discusses the importance of this issue and how we might be able to get more teachers to stay in the schools that need them most.
