Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education, Jefferson City.
This report presents recommendations made by the Task Force on the Recruitment of Missouri's Future Teachers. The task force was established by the Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education (CBHE). Specific recommendations focus on the following issues: (1) collaboration on school/college issues by the State Board of Education and the CBHE; (2) entry-level academic achievement of Missouri's future teachers; (3) subject area knowledge of Missouri's future teachers; (4) student financial aid programs; (5) alternative entrance to the profession; and (6) enhanced research in teaching through Centers of Eminence in Teaching. Additional issues requiring further study were identified: salaries paid to teachers and conditions of work; content and structure of the curriculum required to become a certified teacher; length of the school year and contract period for teachers; and teacher shortages in certain geographical regions and selected disciplines. Appendixes include: "Entrance Requirements to Missouri's Teacher Education Programs"; "Profile of Missouri's Teachers and Teacher Education Programs in Missouri: Executive Summary"; and "Survey of Teacher Education in the State of Missouri: Executive Summary."
