“Who Stays in Teaching and Why: A Review of the Literature on Teacher Retention” is scheduled to be online March 21 from the NRTA.

A report sponsored by the AARP’s Educator Community highlights the array of factors—from pay, to relationships with colleagues, to opportunities for professional growth—that influence teachers’ decisions about whether to stick with a particular school or with teaching in general.

Donaldson of the Project on the Next Generation of Teachers, based at Harvard University’s graduate school of education, suggests that different subgroups of teachers respond differently to incentives and constraints.
