The problem was to determine the extent of teacher turnover in the Stockton Unified School District for the school years 1954-1956 and to analyze the factors involved in the teacher turnover for the year 1955-56.
The problem has two parts. The first of these was to explore the magnitude of the problem by analyzing the percentages of teacher turnover experienced in the Stockton Unified School District for the three years included in the study.
The second part of the problem was to determine the factors involved in teacher turnover in the Stockton Unified School DIstrict for the same period of time and to make an analysis of those factors. To do so it was first necessary to examine the stated reasons for resignations during the three years studied. In addition the significant characteristics (e.g., age, sex, etc.) of the group resigning in 1955-56 were studied, and an analysis was made of factors, unstated in their resignations, which seemed to have contributed to teachers’ resigning during that year, either to be employed in another occupation or to teach elsewhere.
