Summary

The present study is the first part of a two-part interview study of nonpersistent teachers. Its main objective was to prepare for data collection in the second part. The major aspects of this present study were--(1) the classification into subgroups of a population of nonpersisting teachers previously identified, (2) the development and refinement of an interview schedule and a method of analysis appropriate to it, and (3) tryout of the revised schedule on a sufficient scale to judge its suitability. All these aspects were accomplished along with classification of 800 nonpersisters into four groups--(1) people who never taught, (2) definite nonpersisters, (3) fuzzy nonpersisters, and (4) an undecided group. The relatively small number of trial interviews in part one did not warrant analysis nor generalization, but there were some visible implications. It seems possible that differences between the available samples of persisters and nonpersisters will not be found because most nonpersisters planned to return to teaching when their children were older. Nevertheless, future interviews will undoubtedly contribute to the enhancement of the holding power of the teaching profession. (gd)
