Texas Teacher Retention, Mobility, and Attrition. Teacher Supply, Demand, and Quality Policy Research Project. Report Number 6.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Policy Planning and Evaluation.
This report presents analyses of the retention, mobility, and attrition of the Texas teaching force in the 1992-93 school year by teacher characteristics and school conditions. The characteristics of teachers who stay in the teaching profession and those who leave are examined by gender, age, ethnicity, years of teaching experience, salary, degree held, subject area taught, and teacher test scores. School conditions of teachers who stay, move, and leave are also examined, including school level, school size, diversity, and community type. Along with providing descriptive information about teachers who stay, move, or leave from one year to the next, the relationship between Texas teacher characteristics and the length of their careers is examined. Induction and retention programs designed to increase the retention rate of new teachers are discussed in addition to recent legislation affecting teacher supply, demand, and quality. Data are summarized in 16 charts. (Contains 29 references.) (ND)
