Annotation201 female teachers from a central Oklahoma district were asked a range of questions dealing with socio-demographic and work-related variables, including attitudes to work and retirement. Identification with work was assessed using the Twenty Statements Test (TST). Findings indicate that overall, women with stronger work identities have significantly more negative attitudes towards retirement than those with weaker work identities. This difference remains significant when controls are introduced for years of teaching experience. (RH).
