Teacher Turnover: Variables

Job satisfaction, teacher life-cycle, age, gender, ethnicity, education level, and internal belief systems are some of the variables researchers have studied regarding teacher retention and attrition. These variables may be categorized as external and internal variables.

Justice, Greiner, and Anderson (2003) state 75% of the demand for newly hired teachers is due to teacher attrition.


Some of the major external variables include school facilities, violence on the campus, and teacher interactions: student-teacher, teacher-teacher, teacher-administrator, and teacher-parent
