While declining teacher satisfaction nationwide has been an area of concern, New York City seems to be keeping teachers and school leaders around longer, suggests data from a new report.

According to the analysis from the New York City Independent Budget Office, both teacher and principal retention in the district has improved dramatically in the past decade: Of teachers who came on the job in 2000-01, 32 percent left after one year, compared with 20 percent in 2010-11. Twenty-seven percent of principals new to their jobs in 2000-01 had left the school system within three years, while only 8 percent of those who began in 2008-09 were gone three years later.

The budget office was required to start collecting information on the schools after the renewal of mayoral control in the district in 2009. The report looks at demographics, student outcomes, budget, principals and teachers, school buildings, and class size in city schools.
