Choosing the Teaching Profession: Teachers' Perceptions and Factors Influencing Their Choice to Join Teaching as Profession
Avgousti, Charalambos
Journal of Education and Practice, v8 n10 p219-233 2017
The study discovered why teachers around the world choose the Teaching profession and the factors affecting their choices. The study is meaningful to teacher education curriculum developers and teacher recruiters, for revealing the effects of teachers' perceptions on their career planning and professional growth. The findings from inferential statistical analysis suggest the need for further in depth research, on the various perspectives of teachers according to their teaching experiences, their efficacy; whether their choice of the profession is just luck, low merit for hiring teachers or having no-other choice and the factors that can increase or retain their passion.
