The Effects of Retired Administrators Returning to the Workforce.
Self, Tucker L.
Many Ohio educators are retiring at a young age and returning to positions in public schools following retirement. Some states restrict retirees' returning to public-school employment. Ohio is the most lenient state of eight states reviewed in allowing retirees to return to work in public schools. This report provides the results of a study of 25 percent of the school districts in Ohio selected randomly by quadrant regarding the hiring of retired administrators. Data for the study were gathered through a survey. A total of 60 percent of those responding to the survey indicated that their district rehired administrators due, in part, to a shortage of qualified administrators or the difficulty in finding qualified individuals to fill administrative positions. More than 400 retired administrators were working in administrative positions in Ohio public schools during the time of the study. Hiring retired administrators is helping reduce the shortage of qualified administrators in Ohio. School districts, however, should use caution with this practice. This practice may help eliminate the current shortage, but could lower the pool of future candidates for administrative positions. (Contains 2 tables and 19 references.) (Author/WFA)
