The Geography of Teacher Turnover

Teacher Turnover, LAUSD
Teacher turnover by school level
Client:   Policy Analysis for California Education - PACE

Teacher turnover rates are readily available for nearly all California schools. By displaying the rates of turnover on a map of the Los Angeles Unified School District, a clustering of high turnover was evident in the central and northern part of the district.

Schools were first classified by type (elementary, middle, high, etc) and then assigned the percent of teacher turnover.  The data used was collected from the Data Quest web tool, available through the California Department of Education website.
 
The maps were used by PACE in policy discussions of how teacher turnover effects the quality of education.
