Employability and Multi-Cultural Teacher Preparation.
Mahan, James M.; Lacefield, Warren E.
This study contrasts the characteristics, preferences, and employability of graduates of cross-cultural teacher training programs with those of peers who received traditional training. It was found that: 1) a need exists for multi-culturally trained teachers; 2) such graduates are highly successful in the job market; 3) these persons tend to seek jobs where their training and experience can be well utilized; and, 4) educators and citizens in multi-cultural communities are willing to accept preservice teachers into their midst and to assist them to further develop teaching and related skills.
