Our own Debra Karro was recently selected with a group of other teachers to be surveyed by an Edith Cowan University research team. Dr Peter Prout and his co-researchers, Dr Geoffrey Lowe, Dr Christina Gray and Ms Sarah Jefferson, are collaborating with veteran teachers to investigate keeping teachers in the profession. Their work has been published in journals including Teachers and Teaching, Theory and Practice, Issues in Education Research, International Journal of Education & the Arts, The Qualitative Report.

On Monday 18 November 2019, The Honourable Kim Beazley AC, Governor of Western Australia, invited the participants to a reception at Government House to celebrate West Australian Veteran Teachers.
