Babo, Gerard; Petty, Douglas J.
Journal for Leadership and Instruction, v18 n1 p8-11 Spr 2019
This study investigated the impact of a New Jersey middle school principal's length of service and a middle school's socioeconomic classification on teacher retention rates for the 2016-2017 school year. Surprisingly, the results of a two-way factorial ANOVA indicated that NJ middle schools with a socioeconomic status classification of middle to upper-middle class had the lowest teacher retention rate (m = 85.55%) in schools that housed principals with 16 or more years of experience (F (21, 168) = 2.677; p < .001).
