Private School Teacher Turnover and Teacher Perceptions of School Organizational Characteristics. Issue Brief. NCES 2005-061
McGrath, Daniel J.; Princiotta, Daniel
National Center for Education Statistics
In a study of teacher turnover in U.S. private schools between the 1999-2000 and 2000-01 school years, within each private school type (i.e., Catholic, other religious, and nonsectarian), teachers who left their school or the profession (movers and leavers) were more likely to report relatively low levels of administrative support, satisfaction with salary, student discipline, and teacher input in classroom and school decisions than were those who remained in the same school (stayers). The percentage of all teachers, stayers, and movers and leavers who reported relatively low levels of organizational characteristics varied across private school type. By employing principal reports, this Issue Brief's analysis of teacher turnover took advantage of the large 1999-2000 SASS sample, which allowed for analysis of teachers by private school type.
