This study analyzes the narratives of teachers who moved from hard-to-staff to easy-to-staff schools within one large urban school district in the United States. Their accounts describe stark contrasts between their experiences at the different schools. We find their choices to transfer can be understood through the lens of craft conscience and thus read as a critique of the inequality they encountered. This analysis offers a novel way of approaching the issue of teacher mobility.
