The Big Talent Hunt: How Leading Public School Districts Recruit Teachers. An Education U.S.A. Management and Policy Report Prepared for School Administrators and School Board Members.
National School Public Relations Association, Washington, DC.
This report, designed specifically for school executives and board of education members, contains information about teacher recruitment. According to the U.S. Office of Education, the nation's teacher preparation institutions now turn out about 145,000 graduates annually, but the need for additional teachers is about 196,660 per year. This major supply-demand discrepancy causes school administrators and boards of education to be increasingly recruitment conscious. This report contains data from selected school districts and university placement offices on such topics as reasons for increasing recruiting, campus recruiting, and recruiting costs. The concluding chapter envisions computers as an integral part of the placement operation 10 years from now. (MF)
