Abstract:The conditions in which new teachers are working and the schools in which new teachers work have an impact on teachers' ability to provide effective instruction. This chapter examines issues such as classroom climate, the socio-economic characteristics of students in these schools, as well as the materials and personnel resources available to these schools. The socioeconomic characteristics of students in these schools are also discussed as well as the materials and personnel resources available to these schools. Comparisons are made between the school conditions facing new teachers and the schools in which more experienced teachers are working.
