Understanding the Roots of Teacher Turnover: A Transactional Model

    Project: Research project

    Project Details

    Description

    Hong Kong's teacher turnover affects 35% of the K-12 workforce. Understanding quitting intentions can help address this issue. Both individual factors (motivation, emotions, experience) and contextual features (school climate, class characteristics, principal support) influence teachers' well-being and quitting intentions. Recent studies also highlight the importance of perceived person-environment fit in influencing teacher turnouver intentions. This study proposes a mediational model examining teachers' perceived usefulness of their career, school administration values, and person-environment fit. Data will be collected from 900 teachers across 30 schools, analyzed using multilevel structural equation modeling.
