I started as the Program Manager of the Mississippi Teacher Corps in July of 2003. Since then, I've recruited three classes.

Here are the overall attrition rates for the program, by years removed from college:

Total Number of Participants: 73
Attrition: 8
Attrition Rate: 11%

Participants right out of college: 47
Attrition: 4
Attrition Rate: 8%

Participants out of college for one to two years: 16
Attrition: 3
Attrition Rate: 19%

Participants out of college for more than two years: 10
Attrition: 1
Attrition Rate: 10%

While the data shows that participants right out of college have the lowest attrition rate the sample size is too small to draw any firm conclusions...
