Good Teachers: An Unblinking Look at Supply and Preparedness.
This monograph presents an overview of the issues associated with teacher supply and demand, teacher recruitment, and teacher preparedness, including a summary of the findings of three recent national policy reports on teaching and education ("Tomorrow's Teachers,""A Nation Prepared: Teachers for the 21st Century," and "Time for Results: The Governors' 1991 Report on Education"). Discussion on teacher supply and demand, teacher recruitment, and teacher preparedness are offered in separate chapters. Each chapter provides information regarding: (1) recent statistical and policy information; (2) implications the recommendations from these three reports might have on local school districts; and (3) policy actions district leaders might consider undertaking. The monograph concludes with a look to the future both of education in the United States and of the school boards' role in teacher and education reform efforts. An extensive list of references is provided. (CB)
