Teacher turnover in charter schools?

One of the big problems that plagues education is high turnover of teachers early in their career. The problem is especially acute in disadvantaged communities, which disproportionately hire and lose teachers. School administrators spend a lot of resources recruiting, screening, hiring, and training new teachers, so when a teacher finishes their stint and heads off for a wealthier district, more lucrative career, or stays home to raise kids, all that investment drains away also. And unlike the military, schools cannot just issue stop-loss orders to keep teachers in their ranks.

So is this problem more or less serious in charter schools? I'd like to see some research on the topic. So far, all we have is anecdotes, like this one about a DC charter school teacher whose school didn't make AYP and she decided to skip to South America. Bye, bye, Jenna. We'll miss you.

Hat tip to Education in Texas.

Ed, I've got to know--how do you do that "below the fold" thing with your blog? I'd love to do that with some of my longer posts, but I haven't found anything on blogger about how to do it. Do you have a link that shows how?

Thanks for any advice,
