Teacher Induction: Implications of Recent Research for Educational Administrators.
Despite the recognition of the problems faced by beginning teachers, the provision of effective induction programs both in Australia and other nations has been less than universal, with only approximately one-half of beginning Australian teachers involved in any substantive form of teacher induction program. This paper offers a review of literature on teacher induction and provides a series of guiding principles for designing a teacher induction program. Industrial, financial, and social barriers to the provision of effective induction programs are recognized. Teacher induction programs are viewed as a right, which should focus on helping, rather than solely evaluating, new teachers. (Contains 24 references.) (LMI)
