One of the many choices New Orleans’ charter school operators face is whether or not to participate in the Teachers’ Retirement System of Louisiana (TRSL). This decision has large fiscal implications for schools and also impacts how schools approach recruiting and retaining teachers.

As New Orleans educators continue to think about the pipeline challenge and teacher turnover, the issue of TRSL participation will remain an important one. In this Policy and Research Brown Bag Lunch, Tulane University’s Jesse Chanin provides answers to several key questions:

  • How does the TRSL pension system work?

  • Which types of schools participate in TRSL?

  • How does teacher workforce composition in schools with TRSL compare to that of schools without TRSL?

  • How is the availability of pensions related to teacher retention?
