This is an executive summary of the literature available on teacher retention prepared for the Education Commission of the States. More females enter teaching than males. Whites are a greater proportion of new teachers than minorities. College graduates with higher measured abilities were less likely to enter teaching. After leaving the profession, science and math teachers were less likely to return to teaching. There is a U-shaped pattern of attrition, in which the greatest attrition is from first year teachers and teachers near retirement. ”Teachers in the field of science and mathematics were more likely to leave teaching than in other fields” (p. ix).
