Abstract

The objective of TFS is to provide information about teacher mobility and attrition among elementary and secondary school teachers who teach in grades K–12 in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. In pursuit of this objective, TFS examines the characteristics of those who stay in the teaching profession and those who leave, including retirees. By collecting information on respondents’ attitudes about the teaching profession and job satisfaction (along with demographic data), TFS can address questions such as the following: What percentage of teachers leaves the profession between one year and the next? What factors contribute to teachers’ decisions to move to another school or to leave the profession? How many teachers move from one school to another? Where do teachers go when they move or leave?
