The purpose of this study was to deterine whether the strength of teachers' off and on-the job connections and their job embeddedness is related to turnover.
Over 143 novice teachers with less than five years of experience were surveyed from three Central California school districts. Teachers from elementary, middle and high schools responded to questions measuring embeddedness.
Results indicate that job embeddedness is related to novice teacher retention. Specifically, job embeddedness is negatively related to educators' intentions to leave. However, the educators from districts with the lowest turnover rates weren't necessarily the educators iwth the highest levels of job embeddedness.
