The focus of this research will revolve around these main questions: Are new teachers adequately prepared for their new teaching position, school culture, demographics, environment, and expectations? The new teacher retention rate is dramatically decreasing in California. Many new teachers leave the education field within the first five years of entering as teachers. Beginning teachers have many pressures guiding their entrance into the teaching field. The first five years are a "vulnerable time" for new teachers entering the field.
