95% of NAATE Graduates Stay in Schools November 3, 2015
The National Academy of Advanced Teacher Education (NAATE) announces that 86% of its graduates from the first five cohorts remain in teaching and an additional 9% serve in formal leadership roles. This is particularly exciting given national trends, which suggest that retention rates closer to 70% should be expected.
The NAATE Program was founded in 2010 with three objectives pointed toward deepening instructional practice amongst top teachers across the nation and expanding their capacity to support and lead their peers with both of these leading to higher retention. NAATE places an emphasis on the teaching mastery, inspiring a renewed commitment to the craft.
