Teacher Retention and Student Performance in the Inner-Urban Elementary School.
Duff, William L., Jr.; And Others
The objective of this study is to identify the correlates of student performance and teacher retention in an inner city elementary school district, in order to provide administrators with information. The study is divided into two parts. In the first, the authors are concerned with describing the inner urban school system. The data to be analyzed are presented, and classical regression techniques are used to specify the three basic teacher retention and student performance models. In the second section, the data are further analyzed in terms of the unique contribution of a priori specified subsets of predictor variables. In addition, a comparison of a principal component regression approach to the a priori grouping of predictors was used in the unique analysis.
