This article profiles five schools with high teacher retention rates and interviews staff to explain the reasons why turnover is low, such as a healthy work environment and empowered teachers. The schools include a formerly struggling high school in Massachusetts that was able to turn around its students' achievement in part by having educators take the lead, and a middle school in Georgia that turned to teachers for ideas on how to better provide a 21st-century education for students.
