Teacher Recruitment and Retention in Rural Districts – A Research Partnership
Jeremy Thompson, Superintendent, Era ISD
J. Young, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership, Lamar University
This session will present a unique research model in which three doctoral students from Lamar University partnered with Era ISD to conduct their dissertation research to address concerns related to teacher recruitment and retention in the rural district. This research model was of great practical value to both the school district and the doctoral students, and the resulting data will be shared for the benefit of other rural districts.
