The Influence of Trust, Teacher Morale/Job Satisfaction, and Capacity Building on Teacher Retention
by Eskew, Amber, D.E., University of Louisiana at Lafayette, 2016, 142; 10245239
Abstract (Summary)

With the increasing focus on student achievement, teachers are being scrutinized in their practices. States are mandating that accountability measures be put in place to ensure teachers are providing high quality education to students. With these added pressures along with various other factors, teachers can become overwhelmed and not able to maintain their focus on student achievement. Thus, teachers may begin to burnout and seek other professions. Leaders must take action to rekindle a passion in teachers so they will stay the course in the profession. What makes teachers stay in the profession? Where do high levels of faculty trust contribute to teachers intending to stay in the profession? Does high teacher morale influence teachers to stay in the profession? Where leaders engage in capacity building within their school organization, is there a higher rate of teachers who intend to stay in the profession?
