Teacher Recruitment and Retention: An Essential Step in the Development of a System of Quality Teaching
Gaytan, Jorge
Career and Technical Education Research, v33 n2 p117-132 2008
The purpose of this study was to examine the (a) perceptions held by high school business education department chairpersons regarding the characteristics of individuals entering and remaining in the teaching profession and (b) characteristics of schools that have been successful in recruiting and retaining business education teachers. The findings revealed that women are more likely to enter the teaching profession than men; attrition is higher for beginning (first 3 years) and near-retirement business education teachers; and schools with higher levels of minority, low income, and low-performing students experience higher business education teacher attrition rates. Recommendations for policy and future research are provided. (Contains 2 tables.)
