Eaton, Elizabeth; Sisson, Wendy
ICF International (NJ1)
The first year of teaching is a "make or break" time. Approximately 30 percent of all beginning teachers either move to a different school or leave teaching at the end of their first year. This paper proposes four action steps for beginning-teacher induction and mentoring programs with the potential to not only keep teachers in the classroom, but increase student achievement and reduce school costs. (Contains 21 endnotes.)
