The Influence of Classroom Characteristics on High School Teacher Turnover
AbstractThis paper examines the effect of class load and other factors on teacher turnover. Unlike previous studies, class load characteristics--class size, number of classes taught, and percentage of class time spent in areas outside a teacher's certification area--are included along with salary, personal characteristics, and district characteristics in a discrete time hazard model to simulate the effects of changing classroom characteristics on high school teacher turnover. The results indicate that class load characteristics are important correlates of job turnover. Policy implications for school districts, given a growing school-age population, are discussed.
