Holme, Jennifer Jellison; Jabbar, Huriya; Germain, Emily; Dinning, John – Educational Researcher, 2018
While there is a robust literature examining the patterns and causes of teacher turnover, few articles to date have critically examined the measures of turnover used in these studies.

Hill, Paul; Jochim, Ashley – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2018
Local superintendents must do an important job while equipped with, at best, modest authority.

Yet superintendents cannot count on obedience or even support from the people who work for…

Many states require prospective principals to pass a licensure exam to obtain an administrative license, but we know little about the potential effects of principal licensure exams on the pool of available principals or whether scores predict later job performance. We investigate the most commonly used exam, the School Leaders Licensure Assessment…

Charter schools can continue to maintain high standards while creating a more sustainable work environment for teachers. This article examines the teacher…
