This document contains 13 papers presented at a national forum on special education teacher satisfaction, retention, and attrition. The forum focused on results and implications of three studies: (1) the San Diego State University/American Institute for Research (California) study of variables related to the satisfaction, attrition, and retention of special education teachers; (2) the Research Triangle Institute (Tennessee) study on improving the retention of special education teachers; and (3) the Eugene Research Institute (Oregon) study on attrition/retention of urban special education teachers. A paper titled "Overview of the Three Research Projects" (by Patricia Thomas Cegelka) introduces the collection and is followed by "The National Picture: Messages from SASS (Schools and Staffing Survey) Data" (Erling E. Boe et al.). Other papers include: "The Attrition Picture: Lessons from Three Research Projects" (John Pyecha and Roger Levine); "Working Conditions: Job Design" (Russell Gersten et al.); "Working Conditions: Administrator Support" (Bonnie Billingsley et al.); "Impact of Job Design Problems and Lack of Support" (Russell Gersten et al.); "Personnel Preparation: Relationship to Job Satisfaction" (Patricia Cegelka and Donald Doorlag); "Strategic Planning for Special Education Teacher Retention" (Peggie Campeau and John Pyecha); "Attrition/Retention of Urban Special Education Teachers: Multi-Faceted Research and Strategic Action Planning" (Martha Morvant and Russell Gersten); "Teachers' Perceptions of Working Conditions: Problems Relating to Central Office Support [and] Section 2: Administrative Support" (Russell Gersten et al.); "Attrition of Special Educators: Why They Leave and Where They Go" (Mary T. Brownell et al.); "Retention and Attrition in Special Education: Analysis of Variables That Predict Staying, Transferring, or Leaving" (David Miller et al.); and "Retention, Transfer, and Attrition of Special and General Education Teachers in National Perspective" (Erling E. Boe et al.) (DB)
