The motivation of students of faculties of education to choose the teaching Profession
Abstract: The text focuses on the motivation of students of faculties of education for the decision about the teaching profession. The goal is by using secondary data analysis to answer, which motives are consider as crucial by students and to reveal how these opinions are influenced by variables gender, age and interest in the profession. According the conclusions of the analysis students consider as significant the internal adaptive motives (interest in work with children, desire to educate) and the external adaptive motives (young environment, freedom and creativity). The motive “sufficient free time” was evaluated as significant from the group of the external maladaptive motives. The influence of analyzed variables was confirmed. Women, younger students and students interested in the profession often emphasize the internal adaptive motives. On the contrary, men and students who want to teach in the future emphasize one of the external maladaptive motives.

Problematika retence vysokoškolských studentů na příkladu z praxe
Issues with retaining university students: an example from experience
Abstract: Finishing university studies brings benefits both to individuals and society; thus, it is satisfying that the demand for this type of study has not diminished. However, this is also a very difficult stage in the life of an individual and not all the students are able to reach its successful completion. This is not only a personal failure, as it also brings a lot of problems to society. Therefore, we welcome the fact that a systematic approach to addressing the issues related to the retention of university students has started to be developed in the Czech Republic. The aim of our article is to follow up theoretical studies in this field and to inform our colleagues about the efforts of the Faculty of Management, the University of Economics in Prague, to look into these problems in practice. We have been trying to identify the most common causes of students leaving the faculty since 2010, primarily focusing on those that can be managed by our own activities and where we can help students cope with them. We are aware of the fact that this is longterm and demanding process where we must gradually introduce other variables that operate in this field and look for further relations between them.
