New teachers working in districts with more economically disadvantaged students are more likely to leave teaching.  However, there are a considerable number of districts that do not follow this trend, suggesting there are other, perhaps even more important, reasons new teachers leave Washington's public schools.

Interpretation

Each point represents a WA school district. Districts that had less than 10 new teachers were not included.
