The Itinerant Schoolmaster. A Socio-Economic Analysis of Teacher Turnover.
Pedersen, K. George
This analytical study of teacher migration in Michigan was conducted in an effort to understand better the complexities of the problem of teacher supply and demand. The major purposes of the study were to (1) generate a research design and an index capable of the analysis of substantial data about the turnover behavior of teachers; (2) acquire further understandings about the concomitants of teacher migration, with particular emphasis on the role which economic factors assume in this social phenomenon; and (3) gain similar analytical insights about the correlates of attrition from the teaching profession.
