Minneapolis Reserve Teacher Cadre Training: A Follow-up Study of the 1969-70 Program.
Crowe, Jennifer L.; Hellervik, Lowell W.
A program to recruit, train, and encourage persons to substitute teach in the inner-city schools of Minneapolis is discussed. A follow-up study was conducted by an independent evaluator, a year and one-half later. Results show that few participants were still on the job. Findings were: (1) 18 prcent of those teachers who completed the program still were substitute teaching in the inner-city schools; (2) Heavy use was made of those who did reserve teach; and (3) The program had an excellent impact on the attitudes of the participants. Recommendations include: (1) Use more careful selection procedures for cadre participants; and (2) Improve placement procedures on completion of training. (Author/CK)
