An Analysis of Factors Involved in the Recruitment, Preparation, Certification, and Retention of Day Trade Teachers.
The purposes of this study were to assess the status of recruitment, preparation, certification, and retention practices and procedures concerning day trade teachers, and to assess the effectiveness of these practices as expressed by day trade teachers, local administrators, and state administrators in the states of Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, and South Dakota. Data were collected by questionnaire from 417 day trade teachers, 134 local administrators, and six state administrators. The findings are presented for Missouri and for the other combined states. Some findings for Missouri were: (1) Over 60 percent of the local administrators did not use a planned program of recruitment and 42 percent reported great effort was necessary to find such teachers, (2) 67 percent indicated frequent or very extensive reliance on other teachers for recruiting assistance, and (3) The most effective recruitment methods were teacher contacts, letters and personal contacts by administrators, and part-time evening teaching. Among the combined findings, were (1) 63 percent of the local administrators expected such teachers to become more difficult to find, and (2) 74 percent of the local administrators felt that it took 2 years for these teachers to become effective. This Ed.D. thesis was submitted to the University of Missouri, Columbia. (EM)
