Preservice Music Teachers' Employment Preferences: Consideration Factors
Robinson, Nicole R.
Journal of Research in Music Education, v60 n3 p294-309 Oct 2012
This study was designed to investigate preservice music teachers' (N = 187) perceptions of employment preferences when considering future teaching positions. Adaptive Conjoint Analysis, a business market-based research tool, was used to determine preferences for personal factors (e.g., salary, commute), school environmental factors (e.g., administrative support, school type, student race-ethnicity, student socioeconomic status [SES]), and music teaching factors (e.g., resources, facilities, program sustainability, parental and community support). Results indicated that preservice music teachers perceived administrative support, parental and community support, and program sustainability as most important factors and student SES and student race-ethnicity composition as least important factors when considering future employment. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
