Where should I teach?

Teacher attrition and migration are a continuing problem within American schools. In order to help decrease these rates, a website was created that provides information about various types of schools including; public, private, Montessori, Waldorf, and Democratic schools. In order to help undergraduates begin researching school types, the website provided a short quiz that, based on respondents’ answers, pointed them to specific school types to research. With this information undergraduates will be more informed about their teaching options, and make career choices that better suit their teaching expectations. Thus, in being more informed and satisfied in their teaching positions, teacher attrition and migration rates may decline.
