An Investigation of the Relationship Between A Set of Economic Concerns and Teacher Withdrawal in the State of Maryland From 1960 to 1970.
Ryscavage, Jerome James, Jr.
In order to determine the relationship between economic concerns and teachers' reasons for leaving a position, this study investigated several economic concerns, postulated to be related to teacher withdrawal. The rationale for study assumed that withdrawal from a teaching position is determined by four economic, or wage criteria including cost of living, intra-comparability of wages, and ability to pay. Twenty-four public school districts in Maryland, eight of which were considered metropolitan and sixteen of which were considered non-metropolitan in nature were studied for 10 years. Data for all the variables were gathered from each of 24 school districts and statistically analyzed through a multiple linear regression computer program. Conclusions indicating the effect of each variable upon teacher withdrawal are presented. Appendixes and an extensive bibliography are included. (Author/MJM)
