Connolly, Ruth A.
Momentum, v31 n3 p55-7 Sep-Oct 2000
Describes a study conducted on third-year teachers in Catholic elementary schools.

Urges schools to build a sense of community among teachers and administrators to help increase teacher retention and, ultimately, improve student learning. (EMH)
