Teacher retention is the ability of schools to retain teachers on a yearly basis. Research is available addressing the importance of schools retaining teachers. Teachers leave schools for a variety of reasons, some of which can be affected by educational variables. While studies have provided data that indicate the number of teachers who leave, research is limited on how educational variables such as student demographics, school finance, teacher experience, and student achievement, affect teacher retention. Furthermore, research is also limited on how these variables relate to each other. With a focus on teacher retention this study includes data from 30 Title I high schools. Bivariate correlations were conducted using the Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient to determine if relationships exist between teacher retention and the aforementioned educational variables. Additionally, multiple data sets are presented to explain relationships among the educational variables themselves.
