Study Identifies the Likeliest to Leave Music Teaching: Data from General Ed Survey Leads to Important Conclusions about Teacher Attrition and Migration
Olson, Catherine Applefeld
Teaching Music, v16 n5 p20 Feb 2009
Music teachers who are young, female, and of minority ethnicity are more likely to leave their school or leave the music education profession altogether, according to recent research conducted by Carl Hancock, assistant professor of music education at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa. Hancock's study, "Music Teachers at Risk for Attrition and Migration," examined data from a 1999-2000 general-education survey conducted by the National Center for Educational Statistics that included 1,931 music teacher participants. The author presents study findings, including suggested responses for administrators.
