Just a quick note regarding the statement above, that most that "resign leave within the first 3 months." Last month when I filed a written complaint and request for whistle-blower protection against retaliation regarding health and safety concerns as a Trainee, I was pulled out of class in Kenya and given the choice of "resign or be administratively separated." I didn't leave on my own accord. I didn't want to leave early, particularly when I was only four days away from being sworn-in. The bigger point is Peace Corps culture of shutting up those who question or raise concerns, however valid, with an order of 15 minutes to pack and a quick plane ticket out. And this just three days after filing my complaint and whistle-blower request. Some serious reform is coming, and I applaud the work of Chuck, Paula, Will, and others who refuse to back down. Thank God for broken records.
