Sources and Recruitment of Distributive Education Teachers.
Mills, Chester O.
Forty-six distributive education state supervisors and 49 teacher educators responded to a survey to determine the supply of distributive education teachers, sources of recruitment, and methods employed to recruit. Some of the findings were: (1) 82.2 percent of the state supervisors and 91.8 percent of the teacher educators indicated an inadequate supply of distributive education teachers, (2) A total of 3,097 additional teachers were estimated to be needed by school year 1970-71, (3) Sources of teacher recruitment were listed in order of importance as colleges and universities, high schools, business, home, and others, (4) State supervisors tended to rely more than teacher educators on business as a source, (5) Both groups ranked the top four methods of recruitment as personal interview, brochures, group presentations, and personalized letters, and (6) The groups differed in their judgment of who was responsible for teacher recruitment. Some of the conclusions were: (1) Teacher educators focus on college students while state supervisors look for present members of the high school staff in recruiting teachers, (2) Review of the literature and the survey results give no indication of a systematic program of recruitment, and (3) The responsibility for recruitment has not been properly defined or assigned.
