Understanding Teacher Retention at Teacher-Powered Schools

Report • August 2023 • By Lars Esdal, Daniel Marks

With teachers leaving the classroom at record-high rates, we asked: What is retention like at teacher-powered schools? Could teacher-powered be an answer to the question of how to keep talented teachers?

Our latest report shows fewer teachers leave teacher-powered schools than they do schools nationwide.

The findings are encouraging and demand more research—but they are early proof that teacher-powered schools belong in any discourse on how to keep talented teachers.
