Teacher Mobility Revisited
AbstractThe mobility patterns of teachers in one large urban school district are examined for the period from 1965 to 1974, using logit analysis. We find that teacher seniority and changes in student enrollments are much more important in explaining transfers and terminations in the 1970s than in the 1960s. The reason for this is that pattern of mobility no longer reflect primarily teacher preferences. Increasingly, they reflect the pattern of declining enrollments and the operation of rules that govern the disposition of surplus teachers. This change has affected the careers of teachers, the learning of children, and the fiscal stability of school districts.
