dc.description.abstractThis study examines the relationship between North Carolina’s new teacher evaluation systems and teacher attrition in the state of North Carolina. Will the new teacher evaluation systems add more stress to the working conditions for teachers that will lead to teachers reporting they intend to move from their school or to leave teaching all together? The conceptual framework for this study is the Job Demands-Resources Theory. This theory asserts all employees experience positive (job resources) and negative (job demands) situations in the work place. These situations interact in a way that impacts each individual employee’s perception of their job. JD-R would support the question of would the teacher evaluations be a job demand that leads to great amount of stress for teachers? The data that provides North Carolina teachers’ responses to questions about their working conditions is The New Teacher Center’s “Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning” (TELL) survey. The results indicated a statistically significant relationship between the teachers reporting their intention to move or leave from their current position over a four-year time period. Keywords: teacher evaluations, teacher attrition, job demands-resources theory
