The Retention of Hispanic/Latino Teachers in Southeastern Rural Elementary Schools
Rodriguez, Oscar
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Northwest Nazarene University
This qualitative study reviewed reasons so few Hispanic/Latino teachers remain employed with rural county public elementary schools. The study evaluated issues that present high retention and attrition concerns for Hispanic/Latino teachers in rural schools. In addition, the dissertation offered suggestions on ways to increase the representation of Hispanic/Latino teachers in rural elementary schools. The results of the study included lack of resources, lack of support, teacher isolation, heavy work load, and residency issues as barriers to Hispanic/Latino teachers' retention in rural school communities. Suggestions to mediate the barrier included improving school leadership, utilizing alternative funding sources, such as grants, promoting collaboration through Professional Learning Communities, developing diversity programs, and teachers evaluating their professional and personal goals.
