Journal of Educational Research & Policy Studies, v5 n2 p103-123 Fall 2005
This study examined teachers' first-year experiences and their intent to stay in teaching. The data used in this study came from the comprehensive National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) for 1999-2000. Results indicated that teacher induction and school leadership can influence teachers' intent to stay in teaching, and that teachers' first-year experiences can affect their intent to stay even at later stages of their careers. Implications of the results for teacher retention are discussed. (Contains 4 tables.)
