WEST SACRAMENTO, CA – A national study analyzing the
effectiveness of defined benefit pensions on teacher retention
and productivity found that pensions play a critical role in
recruiting and retaining highly productive California teachers.
This increases California’s school effectiveness, thereby
benefitting students, according to the study titled, “Three Rs of
Teacher Pension Plans: Recruitment, Retention, and Retirement,”
issued by the National Institute on Retirement Security (NIRS).
