Note: Data are for teachers in public noncharter schools in the 2011–2012 Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) whose status is known in the 2012–2013 Teacher Follow-up Survey (TFS). A teacher is in a low-poverty school if less than 25% of the student body in his/her classroom is eligible for free or reduced-price lunch programs; a teacher is in a high-poverty school if 50% or more of the student body in his/her classroom is eligible for those programs. For statistical significance, *** denotes p < 0.01, ** denotes p < 0.05, and * denotes p < 0.1. Regressions control for credentials and state fixed effects.
