In Catalyst Chicago magazine’s story “Jumping the ship” on teacher turnover, Matthew Ronfeldt was quoted on the trend’s harmful effects. He said, “The harm is more pronounced in lower-performing schools that serve black students. We don’t know exactly why this is, but it is in the very schools with the highest turnover that the harmful effects are most pronounced.” Access the magazine here; the story begins on page 4.
