A significant media interest spurred the most recent Think-Tank IDEA's study "Teacher Turnover in Europe."

Filip Pertold and Miroslava Federičová find that more young male teachers left their profession during the economic transformation from 1990-2000. It is likely due to more lucrative opportunities in alternative careers according to, Český rozhlas Radiožurnál, Lidové noviny, and others.
