To be continued: a narrative study of continuation high school teachers
Continuation high schools, and especially the teachers of continuation high schools, are vastly understudied. This narrative study examined the reasons why long-term continuation high school teachers choose to remain in a school that has a great number of stereotypes surrounding them and their students. Six continuation high school teachers took part in the study. Based on the teachers' stories, long-term continuation high school teachers remain because they enjoy the community-like setting, they have the autonomy to make professional teaching decisions, and they truly enjoying building strong relationships with students who have suffered academic failure.
