Abstract:

Pacific Resources for Education and Learning (PREL) works with 10 American-affiliated Pacific entities: American Samoa, the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia (Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei, Yap), Guam, Hawaii, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau. The survey raises awareness of the risk factors affecting educators in the Pacific entities and provides insight necessary to redress the concerns of students, policymakers, and educators around the region. The study identified risk factors affecting educators in the Republic of Palau. These risk factors might also play a role in teachers' and school administrators' absenteeism, attrition, and stress burnout. In the Republic of Palau, 159 teacher and 20 administrator surveys were returned. Absenteeism for both teachers and administrators is higher than in many of the other Pacific entities. The main reasons cited were personal illness, funerals, and a sick family member. Approximately 27 percent of teachers surveyed stated they may leave within two years due to low salaries, health problems, retirement, poor relationships with parents, students' bad attitudes, and pressure from the community. The data collected in the study reveal the extent of these problems and shed some light on possible contributing factors. Appendixes contain teacher and administrator questionnaires.
