Teacher Turnover in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

Dates: 2010 - 2011

The advent of the Pennsylvania Information Management System (PIMS) made statewide analysis of teacher turnover possible for the first time. Using this database, RFA examined teacher retention and turnover across the state and conducted comparative cross-district analyses that tracked teacher mobility as well as predictors and effects of teacher turnover. This project was funded by the Ford Foundation and the William Penn Foundation.
