Summary

A continuing concern in a number of teaching fields is the shortage of fully qualified teachers. The decisions of fully qualified teachers to continue in their teaching assignments (retention), to transfer to another assignment (transfer), or to leave the profession for some other activity (exit attrition) are the major determinants of the degree to which teacher shortages occur. This paper describes the "Comprehensive Retention and Attrition Model" (CRAM), a conceptual framework for organizing the numerous forms which teacher retention, transfer, attrition, and reentry can take. The model also incorporates teacher characteristics such as qualifications, age, and marital status, and an analytic approach to identifying teacher incentive variables having an impact on career decisions. CRAM provides a framework for conceptualizing teacher movements within the profession and exiting from it, and for designing research on teacher retention, transfer, attrition, and reentry from a national perspective. A short paper by the same author is attached: "Incentive Effects on Teacher Behavior." The focus of this paper is on using the Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) of the National Center for Education Statistics to study incentive effects on teacher career decisions. (JD)
