Harness, Tim D.
This study focuses on current policies of selection, training, and evaluation of teachers, and on currently available methods and resources to improve these policies. Annotations and abstracts are presented of recent studies on the following topics: (1) teacher quality; (2) public opinion of the public schools; (3) identifying effective education; (4) methods and practices of evaluation; and (5) efforts to improve teaching. A brief summary of key points follows each topic. Discussion and conclusions on insuring competency in certified teachers, employing the best of those certified, and insuring continued professional growth of teachers subsequent to employment are presented, and recommendations are made. Appendixes include data on the Scholastic Aptitude Test and the National Teacher Examination, a list of 85 effective teacher competencies, and 12 recommendations for a quality teacher evaluation system.
