Abstract

The need for qualified teachers is increasing as teachers from the baby boom generation retire and student population grows. This need is especially heightened for online learning as student online enrollments grows rapidly. Not only does there need to be a greater effort to prepare online teachers, online schools should work to retain the qualified teachers that they have. This case study examined factors that influenced teacher satisfaction at an online charter high school. Analysis of 22 interviews from 11 teachers, identified five primary influences of teacher satisfaction: (1) flexibility, (2) support, (3) communication, (4) control and design, and (5) student performance.
