A nine-member Future of Teaching Committee, appointed by the State Board of Education in October of 1985, suggests a sweeping set of recommendations to provide 20,000 new teacher replacements in Michigan's public school classrooms in the next several years. An overview is presented of the Committee's recommendations to the Governor, the Legislature, the State Board of Education, colleges and universities, and local school districts. The recommendations are designed to accomplish several objectives, including: (1) suggestions to ensure sufficient financial investment in teachers and teacher education; (2) suggestions for recruiting the most committed, caring and talented teachers; (3) methods of providing quality school leadership through better trained administrators; (4) steps to ensure quality teacher education; and (5) suggestions aimed at providing appropriate physical conditions and a professional climate in the schools.
