How School Leaders Influence Teacher Burnout in "No Excuses" Charter SchoolsTuesday, November 5 at 4 PM
Jubilee Hall, Rm 141
Charter Management Organizations (CMOs) currently run a third of all charter schools in the country. Some believe that the best of them represent a viable strategy to scale up high-performing, high poverty schools, yet reports show that CMOs face major issues with teacher burnout and turnover generally attributed to 60-80 hour work weeks.
This presentation discusses the results of logistic regression analyses with 2010-2011 teacher survey data from one large CMO operating over 25 schools to see whether teachers' perceptions of their workload are associated with their decisions to leave after accounting for teacher/school characteristics and working conditions.
