NEW YORK (AP) - A new report shows that more New York City teachers are remaining in their jobs.

The city Independent Budget Office report found that 30 percent of some 6,000 teachers hired in the 2008-09 school year quit their jobs within three years. That’s down from 41 percent of nearly 9,000 teachers hired for the 2000-01 school year.

According to the Wall Street Journal (http://on.wsj.com/1nRfTXp ), the report also found that high-poverty schools had the highest percentage of departures. Fifty-five percent of new teachers left their first assignment within three years, compared with 39 percent at low-poverty schools.

The study also found that during the 2011-2012 school year, 44 percent of teachers in high-poverty schools were white, compared with 73 percent in low-poverty schools.
