dc.description.abstractThe attrition of certified personnel from schools implementing Total Quality Management (TQM) was studied. The surveyed schools represented a national sample of school districts and schools that had implemented TQM for three years. Tests of Proportionality were conducted to determine if there was any statistical significance between the number of certified personnel leaving schools implementing TQM and the number of certified personnel leaving schools as reported in a national study. Five other variables were tested: age, degrees held, ethnicity, years of experience, and teaching level. Findings revealed that: It must be concluded that certified personnel attrition for the sample group was significantly less. In the sub-category of elementary schools certified personnel attrition significantly decreased for the three years of the study. It was also found that the certified personnel attrition within the sub-category of secondary schools significantly decreased for the three years of the study.
