„Teachers are likely to change schools for higher salaries or better working conditions; they might also leave the profession for better jobs. This is particularly common among science teachers who have alternative and possibly better job prospects outside the teaching profession (but this largely depends on the local economy).“

Großbritannien: Maths graduates can earn more in occupations other than teaching ...

Großbritannien: „The data shows that teachers with a maths degree tend to earn around £4,500 less per year than those maths graduates who choose an alternative profession. This indicates that maths graduates may be more inclined to choose an alternative career to seek higher pay rewards. […] It is apparent that maths graduates can earn more in occupations other than teaching. Therefore, there appears to be both evidence of and a rationale for a shortage of maths teachers.“
