Retaining Teacher Talent: The View from Generation Y

Abstract

Forward-looking leaders in states and districts will find in this report cutting-edge ideas on how to build a world-class teacher corps by understanding what attracts and dissuades Gen Y teachers from the profession.

Two overarching themes emerge:

  • Teachers' views on the best ways to structure teacher compensation are evolving.

  • Teachers' views on the conditions under which they work are influenced by their generation and experiences.

However, in both cases, there is strong evidence of a confluence and constancy of teacher views that spans the generations. The six key findings described in this report all point to the fact that supporting teacher effectiveness will likely have a profound impact on teacher retention.

Multi-media resources including a video chronicle and facilitator's guide and presentations at national teacher quality conferences are presented with the report to aid those leading reforms at the district, state, and national levels.
