The New York City's Independent Budget Office released its second annual statistical portrait of the city school system on Thursday. The comprehensive report looked at student demographics, resources and outcomes.

It found, for example, that 30 percent of teachers who started in the school system in 2008-2009 left system three years later. But report authors said there is evidence that the teacher attrition rate is decreasing.

"For teachers who began in 2005-2006, 49 percent were in the same school three years later, and 37 percent were in the same school five years later," the report said.

Gotham Schools takes a closer look at principal training data present in the IBO report. It found that of the 68 graduates of the Leadership in Education Apprenticeship Program, 25 became principals in the system.
