Abstract

High attrition of beginning teachers is a long-standing issue for many countries. While in some countries, beginning teachers tend to be “hired today, gone tomorrow,” in societies such as Taiwan, they are more inclined to stay. This study investigated how beginning teachers in Taiwan deliberate on the pros and cons of teaching in making such a decision. The results showed that both intrinsic and extrinsic factors count for their retention. In the deliberation process, facilitative and discouraging factors are both taken into account and coping strategies are developed. Implications of these findings are further discussed within a broader international perspective.
