NAATE keeps teachers in the classroom. Fact.
June 13, 2016

While national surveys report annual teacher retention rates of as low as 80% in many district and charter schools, with even lower rates in high need schools, NAATE graduates through 2015 remain in student facing roles in schools at a much higher rate. Eighty-two percent of NAATE graduates, through September of 2015, remained in classroom teaching and an additional 13% remained in school buildings in formal leadership roles. This suggests that NAATE’s model of advanced learning programs, in residence, with selective admissions, based on peer-to-peer learning methods tailored to the needs of experienced, high performing professionals, can serve as a retention tool for high quality teaching professionals serving in high need schools.
