Research-Based Toolkit Addresses Teacher Retention

A graduate research team from the Clinton School of Public Service partnered with Arkansas Teacher Corps during the 2022-23 school year to explore the most salient factors for recruitment, retention, and attrition of teachers in Arkansas. Administrative support at the building level is the most salient factor for teacher retention. The team developed "Grow Your Own" Playbook with a checklist for administrators and check-in template for teachers aligned to the 5C's of administrative support that foster teacher retention.
