Abstract:
Title I schools are the schools most impacted by teacher retention. Students in these schools can ill afford the depressed academic achievement that is associated with frequent teacher turnover. High teacher attrition only serves to broaden the achievement gap between students at Title I schools and those at non-Title I schools. In addition to compromised academic achievement, there are financial implications to high teacher attrition. The highest costs are associated with recruiting and induction of new employees. Additionally, there are productivity losses as less experienced teachers do not have the skill sets associated with more veteran teachers. The study indicates that investing time and resources into teacher leadership, school leadership and instructional practices and support can improve teacher job satisfaction and retention in Title I schools. Increased teacher retention will enable scarce funds that are used for recruitment and processing of new teachers to instead be used for other needs
