Teacher Education, Educational Leadership & Policy ETDs

Publication Date



It is generally recognized that, other things being equal, teachers who have been in a system long enough to become acquainted with local conditions are able to give more efficient service to the schools than new teachers. The question of turnover of teachers in service has come up within recent years as one of the outstanding and pressing problems concerning the administration of our school systems. It is generally understood that the mobility of our teachers is far in excess of what it should be for the attainment of the best results in our schools. Teachers that are on the move do not have time to become acquainted with either the pupils or the parents, or to become identified with the interests of the local community.
