Title:  Attrition of New Teachers Among Recent College Graduates: Comparing Occupational Stability among 199293 College Graduates Who Taught and Those Who Worked in Other Occupations
Description: This report examines the occupation stability of bachelor's degree recipients during the first 4 years after receiving the bachelor's degree. The analyses address the following question: were graduates who were teaching in 1994 more or less likely than those in other occupations to leave the work force or work in a different occupation in 1997? The data indicate that K-12 teachers among 1992-93 college graduates were among the least likely to work in different occupations in 1997 compared with 1994.
