Teachers’ remaining career opportunities: The role of value fit and school climate

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

In light of an aging teacher population, this study investigates the influence of school climate and personschool (P-S) value fit on teachers' perspectives regarding their career futures. The results, based on a sample of 147 teachers, indicate that P-S value fit is positively associated with remaining career opportunities, over and above the negative effect of age. In addition, both climate for performance/academic press and climate for socialization affect teachers' future career perspectives through a P-S value fit mechanism. These findings imply that schools can enhance teachers’ perceived remaining career
opportunities by creating strong school climates and improving perceived value fit.
