Summary

Data collected from the 1987-88 Schools and Staffing Survey supplied estimates of teacher attrition from public and private schools and from the profession, sources of supply of newly hired teachers, and destinations of attritioning teachers. Findings indicate that: (1) rates of attrition in public schools do not vary as greatly from the national average as those of private schools when examined by the selected characteristics; (2) nationally, attrition from private schools is higher than from public schools, and in both sectors, attrition is higher in elementary than in secondary schools; (3) attrition increases with school size increases in both public and private schools, and it is highest in alternative and special education schools in both sectors; and (4) attrition increases as the percentage of minority students in the student body increases. Findings on destinations of teachers reported as leaving schools indicate: the majority of teachers who leave positions in one school move to other teaching positions, and 40 percent of public school leavers and 43.8 percent of private school leavers are reported in nonteaching activities. Newly hired teachers either transfer from other schools, have not taught before, or are reentering the profession. (IAH)
