Teacher Recruitment and Selection. PREP-20.
National Center for Educational Communication (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
In an interpretive studies project conducted for the Office of Education, Dr. Dale L. Bolton of the University of Washington, Seattle, surveyed the findings of research and the hiring and placement practices of business and industry, governmental agencies, and large school systems. In his final report he examines such problems as how to approach and carry out the tasks of recruiting, selecting, and evaluating teachers in a school district; how to determine the number of teachers to be hired; who to involve in determining what is effective teaching; how to collect and analyze information on applicants; what strategies to use in making decisions; and how to alter the system which presently exists. He also suggests some implications and applications of his findings to assist administrators, teachers, and board of education members to apply research and development results to the processes of recruiting, selecting, and evaluating teachers. This PREP kit on "Teacher Recruitment and Selection" is the first of two kits based on Dr. Bolton's final report. The second kit will treat the evaluation of teachers. Both kits are being entered into the ERIC system and will be available from the ERIC Document Reproduction Service, in microfiche and hard copy. The final report from which the two kits were taken will also be available from EDRS, but only in microfiche. (Author/LS)
