Criteria and Techniques in the Recruitment and Selection of Teachers.
Clifford, Gerald F.
This study reviews current literature relating to methods of selection and recruitment of teachers and describes some of the more innovative techniques suggested by practicing administrators and recruiting agencies. Emphasis is given to the importance of establishing sound criteria and workable techniques of teacher selection, together with methods for allowing dialogues between interviewer and applicant. Among the criteria and requirements given for teacher selection are (1) adaptation to the particular and peculiar needs of the community, (2) an adequate and appropriate salary schedule, and (3) the personal factors relating to the applicants themselves. Various guidelines or techniques which may be developed and used in recruiting programs are listed, as is information on college placement offices and procedures for the collection of data. There are also discussions on the interview, innovative methods for teacher selection, technology and teacher selection, techniques for the applicant, and errors in the selection process. Appended are pointers for recruiters, suggestions for developing a salary schedule, a position analysis outline, suggested questions to guide interviewers and applicants during an interview, five interview techniques for teacher selection, and a guide for applicants for teaching positions.
