The purpose of this research project was to identify methods to retain minority teacher education candidates and identify curricular and environmental factors that affect recruitment and retention of minority teacher education candidates and student teachers. Because of the low enrollment of minority students in the department in comparison to the number of minority teachers in the state, the researchers desired to ascertain why students choose to remain or leave the department. Focus groups were conducted with minority students to collect information on retention factors.
