“Private School Teacher Turnover and Teacher Perceptions of School Organizational Characteristics” is posted at the National Center for Education Statistics.

Teachers in private schools who leave their jobs or the profession are likely to report poor administrative support, frustration over student-discipline issues, and dissatisfaction with their salaries, concludes a report by the National Center for Education Statistics.

The study by the U.S. Department of Education’s statistics arm, which reviewed data from a 1999-2000 NCES Schools and Staffing Survey and a 2000-2001 teacher follow-up survey, reviewed the experiences of about 12,000 private school teachers.
