Graduate School of EducationEffective teacher placement is one of the most difficult problems facing educational administrators today. The data shows that 25% of teachers are leaving the job within their first year of service and 50% within their first 5 years of service.

To compare these potential relationships across four core subject areas and grade levels 1-6. 3.
