Jim Wyckoff, professor at Curry and director of EdPolicyWorks, has research on teacher churching cited in new Education Week article.

What Happens to Student Learning When Teachers Change Positions in Schools?

The study, forthcoming in Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, was written by Allison Atteberry of the University of Colorado Boulder, Susanna Loeb of Stanford University, and James Wyckoff of the University of Virginia.

For the study, they looked at records on teachers in New York City all the way back from 1974 through 2010. A subset of those teachers, from 1999-2000, were linked to student achievement records in grades 3-8, allowing the researchers to analyze the link between teacher churn and students' test scores.
