Degrees, Tenure, Experience, and Turnover of Professional Staff Members in the Texas Small Schools Project.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Administration Services.
Utilizing data from the Texas Education Agency's Division of Finance, Division of Research, and Small Schools Project office, information was derived on academic degrees, tenure, experience, and the rate of teacher turnover during the 1971-72 Texas Small Schools Project (137 schools). It was found that a smaller percentage of teachers has baccalaureate degrees and no degrees in project schools than in non-project schools; that the percentage of master's degrees and above is approximately the same for project and non-project schools; that almost one-half of the teachers have been in the project schools for 1 or 2 years; and that the teacher turnover rate is too high in the 43 project schools used as the source of information on turnover. The recommendation was made that school districts evaluate professional staff and community millieu to determine how teachers and other professionals can be persuaded to remain on a permanent basis.
