Collegial Climate and Novice Teachers' Intent to Remain Teaching
Pogodzinski, Ben; Youngs, Peter; Frank, Kenneth A.
American Journal of Education, v120 n1 p27-54 Nov 2013
Using survey data from novice teachers across 99 schools, we estimated multilevel regressions to identify the association between novices' intent to remain teaching within their schools and their perceptions of the collegial climate. The results suggest that novice teachers who perceive a more positive collegial climate marked by higher degrees of professional fit and collective responsibility among colleagues are more likely to report intent to remain teaching within their schools. The findings from this study have implications for understanding novice teachers' intended career decisions as a function of their perceptions of the collegial climate within their schools.
