The purpose of this study was to examine the differences in the perceptions of juvenile justice teachers in Georgia, Louisiana, and Ohio. Juvenile justice teachers (n = 542) completed an extensive attrition and retention survey with a 98% response rate. Comparisons were made between states, type of facility (short or long-term), gender, and teaching areas (general or special education). Significant differences were found across all areas. Results are discussed in relationship to how to retain and support juvenile justice teachers on the job. (Contains 2 tables.)
