The Movement of Teachers within Ontario School Boards
Sibbald, Timothy
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n183 p4-14 2017
This study examines teacher movement between secondary schools within the same school board using qualitative multiple case study. Interviews were conducted with each participant before moving, shortly after moving, and a period of time after moving schools. The coding of the interviews found evidence corroborating known themes of leadership, teacher match to the school environment, professional success, peers, working conditions, productivity, personal reasons, the school building, socio-economic situation of the community, financial considerations, and proximity to where teachers went to school, were born, and have relatives. However, two additional themes, stress and the role of policies, were identified before achieving theoretical saturation; these two additional themes are the focus of this article.
