Abstract 

This study addresses education policies that affect beginning teachers in California—induction, clear credentialing, evaluation, and tenure. During the 1990s and early 2000s, California policymakers developed a set of policies designed to support beginning teachers, increase their effectiveness, and reduce their attrition. Landmark legislation (AB 2042) in 1998 remade the credentialing system and established the nation’s first mandatory new teacher induction program. Policies on teacher evaluation and tenure had been established earlier. How beginning teachers experience these policies is the focus of this study.
