Counting the Cost: A Commitment to Educational Equity that Yields Returns

This report presents a return on investment study to calculate the per student equity cost on teacher retention, conducted by Metis Associates on behalf of NTC.

To estimate the return on investment, we used both empirical data from the SRI study (e.g., observed differences in student test scores between treatment and control groups) and assumptions drawn from a review of relevant literature (e.g., the cost to schools/districts of replacing a teacher who leaves their position).
