An Analysis of Attrition in the Downstate Illinois Teaching Force, 1972-73 to 1977-78.
The implications of departure of teachers from the work force are examined. Specifically questioned are the departure patterns of teachers with less than one year experience, departure patterns of teachers with twenty or more years of experience, and the relationships between the age and the experience of teachers. These questions make distinctions between the sex of teachers as well as among elementary, secondary and special education certification. Survey results are presented in tabular form accompanied by narrative analysis. An overview of teacher career patterns and departure is included and suggestions are made for further research. (JD)
