New York State Teachers Reserve: A Summary.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
A State Education Department-based agency or Teachers Reserve is needed to canvass New York for potential teachers to stem the rising teacher shortage and to develop and maintain a program for training or retraining any individual desiring a teaching career. A statewide meeting of colleges, school administrators, and women's service groups is planned to publicize the purposes of the Reserve and attract members. Anyone subsequently applying to the Reserve will be classified according to academic and professional levels (inactive or retired teachers, provisionally certified college graduates, liberal arts graduates, and noncollege applicants) and according to the direction of educational opportunities to be made available to them: refresher courses, home study and/or oncampus courses leading to certification, and paraprofessional training and job openings created with the cooperation of school administrators. Two demonstration projects will be planned to develop the bases of future training programs and to provide inactive teachers with a means of updating skills. (LP)
