Abstract

In this study, the researchers examined whether several preservice teacher attributes would predict the perceived career longevity of prospective teachers if placed in an urban and suburban school. The findings suggest that preservice teachers envisioned that their careers would last longer when placed in a suburban school compared to an urban school. Culturally responsive teaching and classroom management self-efficacy beliefs significantly predicted preservice teachers’ perceived career longevity if placed in an urban and a suburban school. The implications for teacher education and research are discussed.
