November Issue Brief: Teacher Retention

Teachers have long been identified as the number one in-school factor that influences student outcomes. Conversely, teacher turnover is correlated with lower student outcomes and contributes to school cultures where churn and instability prevent positive change from taking root. How to retain teachers, and especially teachers of color, has emerged as a key area of interest for district leaders and policymakers.

In this month’s issue brief, Core Education shares resources that explore the problems associated with teacher turnover, looks at the reasons teachers themselves give for leaving the profession, and examines strategies for increasing retention of effective educators, with a special focus on the retention of Black educators.
