Retaining Teacher Talent: The View From Generation Y

This publication, by Learning Point Associates and Public Agenda, examines how best to retain teacher talent among Generation Y, the cohort born between 1977 and 1995. As this group becomes increasingly large share of the teaching workforce, attention must be paid to Gen Y’s needs and preferences to ensure that these teachers are retained. The observations in this report come from a national, random-sample survey of 890 public school teachers. Two key themes uncovered were that teachers’ views on the “hard factors” of their employment, particularly on compensation, are evolving, and their views on “soft factors” are generationally and experientially influenced.
