Davis, Barbara H.; Waite, Susan Field
Professional Educator, v28 n2 p1-10 Fall 2006
This paper describes a school/university graduate induction program that has provided support to beginning teachers since 1994. A 10-year follow-up study of program graduates was recently conducted to examine these questions: (a) How many graduates are still in the education profession? (b) How many have remained in the classroom? and (c) What are their retrospective perceptions of the induction program on their initial teaching experiences? Quantitative and qualitative data were collected. Findings revealed a high percentage of graduates who are still in the field of education. Graduates reported positive retrospective perceptions of the influence of the program on their initial teaching experiences. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
