Teacher Retention In An Era Of Rapid Reform


What about the economy? I know several teaches who are miserable and say they would leave in a heartbeat if the could find something else. Could the economy be acting as a vacuum keeping people stuck to teaching. About seven years ago in my hometown we were advertising in Canada, India and the business world because we didn't have enough teachers. We haven't had to do that in a while but nobody i know thinks things have gotten better in the classroom.

In my copious free time, I need to finish a paper I owe a friend adjusting this for age. A substantial limitation in the literature is the treatment of 22-year-olds in their first year the same as 39-year-olds in their first year.
