Bettini, Elizabeth A.; Cheyney, Kristi; Wang, Jun; Leko, Christopher
Intervention in School and Clinic, v50 n4 p221-225 Mar 2015
Special education teacher attrition has numerous negative impacts for students and schools. Administrators play an essential role in supporting special educators, but they seldom receive adequate preparation to provide this support effectively. The authors synthesize job characteristics theory, an area of research conducted by organizational psychologists. This theory is used to provide practical suggestions for administrators interested in supporting and retaining special educators.
