Do teacher mentorship programs really have an impact?
In a study of the Alaska Statewide Mentorship Program, our researchers and evaluators found that new teachers who were provided with experienced mentors were more likely than their peers to still be on the job after three years and that students in their classrooms performed better in math and reading.
Alaska is one of only a handful of states that has funded such a statewide program. What has gone well? What has been challenging? Check out our new blog post from Phyllis Ault as we continue our February focus on teacher recruitment and retention.
