Young teachers, high turnover

Teachers are more likely to stay on the job in urban charter schools than in district-run urban schools in Wisconsin, concludes a study by the Center on Reinventing Public Education. “Turnover in charter schools appears to be driven by the same factors at work in traditional public schools — a combination of inexperienced teachers and demanding teaching environments.”

    So I was looking through the PDF of the report and I think you’ve got things backwards in your first sentence of the post. I’m pretty sure teachers are LESS likely to stay on the job in urban charter schools than in urban public schools, although the data on pages 6-9 seem to indicate that this is somewhat inverted outside the urban sphere.

    I could be misreading, but at the very least it’s worth looking at again.
