Men Teachers and Ex-Teachers: Some Attitudes and Traits


by Robert L. Thorndike & Elizabeth Hagen - 1961

A study was made of 250 classroom teachers, 126 school administrators, 82 college teachers, 172 ex-school teachers and 28 ex-college teachers, all of whom had taken a common battery of aptitude tests in the Air Force in 1943. It was found that those who left public school teaching had been significantly superior to those who were still classroom teachers on tests of reading comprehension, arithmetic reasoning, and mathematics. There was a suggestion of similar differences between those who had left and those who had remained in college teaching. The higher ability of the nonteachers was paralleled by higher income.
