Should I stick it out yet again?

I work for an inner city charter school. I have the inclusion class again. Several kids on BIPS and I only get support part of the day. Six are inclusion out of 17 plus I have Tier 2 MTSS kids where I provide the supports. It's too much and the behaviors are insane. We don't have consequences anymore and can't give silent lunch or take away recess minutes. I just don't see teaching desirable anymore and haven't for a long time. I almost just want to throw the towel in now rather than deal with this circus for yet again another year. Is it so bad to break a contract? I don't think I'll teach again and plan on going back to school to get a different degree even though I'm pushing 50. I actually like learning and going to school, but don't like teaching in this dysfuctional education system that we have today.

I stuck it out one year and 12 years later I still regret it. If you can afford it and have other options I say go. Others may (and will) disagree with me but your mental health is more important.

I did exactly what you were considering. It was very difficult for me to get a job, and I believe thatís because I am over 50. So now Iím back to being an instructional aid. Itís a whole lot less money, but my stress level is down.

I notice you say charter school, not that public schools do not have the same at times; but you might try the public schools in your area. Charter, in my state, cannot cause you to lose your credential for the year.

I could have almost written this....If you can afford it, go for it. It is too much and they keep adding to it all. Plus, the kids are worse ( behaviors extreme)w/ the lack of consequences.
You wonder who is thinking in education matters nowadays... School will be fun for you and maybe give you the rest and rejuvenation you need. I wish you the best! My towel is getting thrown in sooner than planned too.
