Designing Strategies for the Recruitment and Retention of Minority Students. Final Report.
Johnson, Calvin
Arkansas has seen a gradual and continuous decline in its number of minority teachers. At the same time, school population demographics indicate that the percentage of minority students is increasing. This study was conducted to address the problems associated with strategies to recruit and retain minority students into education. A survey form was mailed to 12 selected 4-year educational institutions in Arkansas, which offer teacher education programs. The purpose of this 19-question survey was to review the recruitment and retention activities in progress at that time. Data collected by the survey are reported; they reveal various strengths and weaknesses in minority recruitment and retention programs. Based on the research, 24 goals and recommended strategies are highlighted. Five appendixes list: (1) universities and colleges selected as respondents in survey; (2) questionnaire: "Status of Minority Student Recruitment and Retention in Teacher Education"; (3) recommendation of the Governor's Task Force on the Recruitment of Minorities into the Education Profession; (4) University of Arkansas Task Force Recommendations; and (5) State of Arkansas, Act 99 of 1989.
