The Influences of School Climate and Teacher Compensation on Teachers' Turnover Intention in China
Liu, Shujie
Educational Psychology, v32 n5 p553-569 2012
This study employed survey research to investigate the differential relationships between dimensions of teachers' job satisfaction (e.g. salary) and their turnover intention, after controlling for demographic variables (e.g. school location). Five hundred and ten teachers from a northeastern city of China participated. The results of the hierarchical multiple regression analyses indicated that (a) teachers were more likely to stay in teaching profession if they worked in urban schools, always wanted to become a teacher or had a realistic view of teaching before they began their career training and (b) a negative relationship existed between teachers' compensation and their turnover intention. This study offered some implications for Chinese educational policy-makers and practitioners regarding how to remain qualified teachers. (Contains 2 tables.)
