Lessons from Prairie Teachers.
Harris, Mary M.
Action in Teacher Education, v23 n1 p19-26 Spr 2001
Examined the Prairie Teachers Project, a program of support for new teachers in eight rural schools, focusing on why teachers remained or left. Teachers who remained tended to have lived in and feel committed to small communities. Rural schools likely to retain new teachers had ongoing programs of professional development, supportive colleagues and administrators, and stable employment conditions. (SM)
