  • Teacher Turnover in Michigan: A Look at Teacher Mobility and Attrition Rates Webinar Date:  October 20, 2017  Time:  01:00 PM - 03:00 PM Description:

    The Teacher Mobility trends webinar will explore the patterns of teacher mobility and attrition in Michigan public schools. Higher rates of mobility and attrition—or turnover— have substantial costs of time, resources, and money for schools, districts, and ISDs. Higher rates of turnover may be indicators of inefficiencies or systemic problems in the teacher pipeline. In this webinar, we will explore Michigan’s patterns of turnover and how they vary across different types of schools and different types of teachers. We will also compare Michigan data to national teacher mobility data. Examining teacher mobility and attrition patterns in Michigan is one critical step in the MDE’s efforts to understand patterns in our educator workforce pipeline.  To register for this "live" event, please visit our Adobe Connect Upcoming Events page at:  http://bit.ly/OETevents
