Teacher Retention and Small Rural School Districts in Montana.
Davis, Marsha Smith
Rural Educator, v24 n2 p45-52 Win 2002
A study examined factors inherent in Montana's smallest schools that attract and retain teachers. Surveys of 126 elementary teachers in 107 small school districts found that a rural background and proximity to family or home were influential in accepting employment. The classroom experience, particularly their relationship with students, and community factors motivated teachers to continue teaching. (Contains 20 references.) (TD)
