THE PROBLEM OF RECRUITMENT.
SCHIFF, ALBERT
TO BEGIN THE TEACHER SELECTION PROCESS MUCH EARLIER THAN THE SENIOR YEAR OF COLLEGE, THE PERSONNEL DIVISION OF THE DETROIT SCHOOL SYSTEM SPONSORS CLUBS OF FUTURE TEACHERS RANGING FROM THE ELEMENTARY THROUGH THE JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS. OVER 4500 PUPILS ARE IN 161 LOCAL SCHOOL UNITS WITH AN AVERAGE SIZE OF 25-30 MEMBERS. ACTIVITIES INCLUDE--(1) CADET TEACHING AND TUTORING, AND (2) AID IN PLANNING FOR COLLEGE (AT THE ELEMENTARY LEVEL VISIT TO A METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY, AT THE SECONDARY LEVEL CONCENTRATION ON SPECIFIC PLANS FOR UNIVERSITY ENROLLMENT). SUGGESTIONS FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF PRECOLLEGE RECRUITMENT PRACTICES INCLUDE THE UTILIZATION OF--(A) LITERATURE AND GUEST SPEAKERS TO SENSITIZE HIGH SCHOOL SOPHOMORES TO CHANGING TEACHER ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES, (B) TEACHER AIDE AND WORK-STUDY EXPERIENCES READILY APPLICABLE TO THE FUTURE TEACHER'S WORK, AND (C) CONFERENCES AND CITY MEETINGS TO PROVIDE FOR SHARING OF EXPERIENCES IN DIFFERENT TYPES OF SCHOOLS. NEW RECRUITMENT PRACTICES AT THE COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY LEVEL SHOULD BEGIN IN THE FRESHMAN YEAR. SCHOOL SYSTEMS SHOULD PROVIDE A COORDINATOR TO HELP THE PROSPECTIVE TEACHER BY--(I) SUGGESTING SHORTAGE AREAS, (II) PROVIDING CHILD-STUDY OPPORTUNITIES THROUGH CLASSROOM VISITS, AND (III) SECURING EMPLOYMENT IN YEAR-ROUND YOUTH GROUPS. FINALLY, DEVELOPMENT OF INTERNSHIP PROGRAMS IN GREATER DEPTH IS SUGGESTED. (AW)
