Blazer, Christie
Research Services, Miami-Dade County Public Schools
Studies indicate that as many as 20 percent of teachers nationwide leave the profession after three years and close to 30 percent leave after five years. This research capsule examines the characteristics of teachers who move or leave and the types of schools they are most likely to leave. Findings on the impact of financial compensation on turnover rates, as well as policy recommendations for reducing teacher turnover, are also included. Finally, teacher retention in Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS), the district's beginning teacher induction program, and financial incentives offered to M-DCPS teachers are summarized. (Contains 1 table.)
