MOTIVATIONAL FACTORS INFLUENCING PERSISTENCE IN TEACHING AS REVEALED BY INTERVIEWS.
FUCHEL, JUDITH C.
A FOUR-PART LONGITUDINAL INVESTIGATION WAS REPORTED OF TEACHING PERSISTENCE OF CERTAIN COLLEGE GRADUATES BASED ON FOUR FOLLOWUP QUESTIONNAIRES. THE SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES OF THIS STUDY WERE TO CONTINUE THE SEARCH FOR (1) REASONS WHY TEACHERS LEAVE CLASSROOM SERVICE AND (2) SUGGESTIONS THAT MIGHT BRING PREMATURELY RETIRED TEACHERS BACK TO TEACHING. SUBJECTS WERE ASKED TO GIVE REASONS FOR PERSISTENCE IN TEACHING, AND FINDINGS SHOWED THAT (1) FINANCIAL STATUS WAS RELATED TO PERSISTENCE, (2) THE HUSBAND'S ATTITUDE WAS NOT DECISIVE IN DETERMINING IF HIS WIFE CONTINUED TO TEACH, (3) THE PERSON'S EXTENT OF INVOLVEMENT WITH HOME OR COMMUNITY WORK WAS RELATED TO NONPERSISTENCE, AND (4) MOST WOMEN ENTERED THE TEACHING PROFESSION BY DEFAULT. VARIOUS IMPLICATIONS ARISING FROM THE STUDY AND POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEM OF NONPERSISTENCE OF CLASSROOM TEACHERS WERE OFFERED. (GD)
