Minority Leaders for Independent Schools.
Kahn, Bobette Reed; Dandridge, William L.
This booklet addresses minority group teachers and teacher candidates and provides information on the career opportunities that are available in independent elementary and secondary schools. A brief description of private schools includes notes on how they differ from public schools in governance, finances, curriculum, and student and faculty selection. In a discussion of what independent schools offer minority teachers, it is pointed out that their active participation as role models, advisors, and counselors to the growing number of minority students in these schools is valuable. An outline is given of professional qualifications and personal qualities independent schools expect of their teachers. Suggestions are made on conducting a successful job search in the area of private education. Resources offering information are listed under three headings: directories, general readings, and organizations. (JD)
