The impact person-environment fit theory has on teacher recruitment and retention
Teacher attrition is negatively impacting the success of students in rural public schools at an unprecedented rate. Using person-environment fit theory as a guide, the perceptions of rural teachers and administrators are shared in this qualitative study. This study makes the connection between satisfaction and the impact the work environment has on it. It analyzes the school-community as a whole and recommends practical solutions to increase retention rates among teachers in rural public schools.
