Teacher Induction, Mentoring, and Retention: A Summary of the Research
Strong, Michael
New Educator, v1 n3 p181-198 Jul 2005
This paper reviews the research literature on new teacher mentoring, focusing on issues of definition, why teachers quit, and the effects of mentoring on retention. Conclusions call for more scientific studies on the relationship between mentoring and retention, more research on the relation between mentoring and other educational outcomes, and a suggestion that we might rethink career goals for teachers under the present social climate.
