Simultaneous Estimation of Teacher Mobility and Reading Scores.
Keeler, Emmett; McCall, John
Teacher mobility in San Diego schools was analyzed, using a two-stage least-squares approach. It was hypothesized that the average reading ability of students at a specific school depends on the degree of teacher movement from the school. More experienced teachers are able to move to the more attractive schools which educate the high achievers. Two consequences of this phenomenon are that reading ability is strongly and negatively related to the social class of students and teacher movement is negatively related to reading ability. Therefore, the analysis suggests that teacher turnover is a serious problem. (Statistical equations are presented along with a table of statistical data.) (Author/BRB)
