Teacher Retention in Catholic Schools
Przygocki, Walter F.
Catholic Education: A Journal of Inquiry and Practice, v7 n4 p523-547 Jun 2004
Teacher attrition is a concern in all educational sectors but is of special importance to Catholic schools because of the salary disparity between public and Catholic schools. This review examines the research on teacher retention in general with a view to understanding how this knowledge might inform teacher recruitment and retention strategies in Catholic schools and dioceses. The relationship between salient teacher characteristics--such as job satisfaction and salary--and teacher retention is discussed.
