A Modest Proposal: Increasing the Supply of Minority Teachers.
Gifford, Bernard R.
A comprehensive program is proposed to increase the supply and quality of minority group teachers. The first step of the program is the early identification of minority and low-income students who have a commitment to teaching. As early as high school, students expressing an interest in teaching as a career would be selected to participate in a special university, pre-professional teacher preparation program. Subsequent intensive university and post-graduate training for selected students would be financially supported by scholarships and internships. The third recommendation addresses the need for programs and rewards for outstanding teachers once they are in the classroom. This would help ensure the retention of effective teachers. (JD)
