Moreau D, Larose F, Smith J. (2021). Student intention to persist in preschool and elementary school education in Québec in a pandemic context. Teachers and teaching. 28(4): 1-13.
This article documents students’ intentions to persist in a teacher training program and a career in preschool and elementary school education during the current pandemic. Interview data from a sample of 33 students were subjected to lexicometric content analysis. Results show ambiguous attitudes toward intention to persist in a teacher training program, notably due to the deterrent effect of remote learning modes. Results also reveal firm intentions to persist in the teaching profession while meeting the challenges posed by the pandemic.
