Teacher Turnover in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

Dates: 2010 - 2011

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