Community College Transfer and University Native Students' Participation in Teaching
King, Stephanie B.; Minchew, Sue S.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v34 n3 p267-276 2010
Students who graduated from a teacher education program at a large public university were contacted to determine if they were teaching. Those who were teaching were also asked if they were teaching in the communities where they lived prior to attending college. A comparison of the graduates who were community college transfer students and graduates who were university native students was conducted. The results indicated that community college transfer students were less likely to be teaching following graduation, but that those transfer students who were teaching were as likely as native students to be teaching in their communities.
