Please join us for a REL Central webinar discussing trends in educator workforce mobility. Presenters from REL Central will provide an overview of two REL Central reports—Teacher Retention, Mobility, and Attrition in Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska, and South Dakota and Factors Related to Teacher Mobility and Attrition in Colorado, Missouri, and South Dakota. In addition, Carolyn Haug from the Colorado Department of Education will express her experiences and insights as a practitioner in interpreting the reports. While Desiree Carver-Thomas from the Learning Policy Institute will offer her reflections on how the study findings fit in the national landscape of research and policy. Finally, the webinar will offer examples of state and local programs and initiatives supported by research to improve teacher retention.
