Beaudin, Barbara Q.
Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, v15 n1 p51-64 Spr 1993
Through maximum likelihood logistic regression analysis, assesses characteristics distinguishing teachers who return to the classroom after career interruptions from those who do not. Among 3,060 teachers, those most likely to return have fewer opportunities for better-paying employment, with more experience and master's degrees, and interrupted their careers when older. (SLD)
