Materialist Culture and Teacher Attrition in the Caribbean: Motivational Differences between Novice and Experienced Jamaican Teacher Trainees.
Bastick, Tony
This study examined motivational factors responsible for the retention of experienced teachers in Jamaica. Using a stratified sample of Jamaican teachers in training, the study compared the motivations for teaching of 821 novice student teachers with the motivations of 206 student teachers having more than 3 years of teaching experience. Data from participant surveys indicated that the total motivation of experienced teacher trainees was significantly greater than that of the novice teacher trainees. Experienced teacher trainees were significantly less extrinsically motivated and significantly more intrinsically motivated than were the novice teacher trainees. (Contains 13 references.) (SM)
