Elementary School Campuses and New Teachers: A Multiyear Study
Martinez-Garcia, Cynthia; Slate, John R.
Education and Urban Society, v44 n1 p83-96 Jan 2012
In this study, the researchers examined the five most recent years of data (2003-2004 through 2007-2008) from the Academic Excellence Indicator System of the State of Texas regarding new teachers on elementary school campuses. We examined the extent to which differences were present between elementary school campuses with the highest new teacher percentages and elementary school campuses with the lowest new teacher percentages. In every case for all 5 years, elementary school campuses with the highest percentages of new teachers had the highest percentages of minority students, highest percentages of economically disadvantaged students, and highest percentages of at-risk students than did elementary school campuses with the lowest percentages of new teachers. Implications of these findings and suggestions for further research are discussed. (Contains 5 tables.)
