Appalachia Educational Lab., Charleston, WV.; Tennessee Association of Colleges of Teacher Education.
This report presents the findings of a study group that is in the process of identifying and gathering information about currently operational programs designed to recruit minority persons to careers in education and retain students in teacher preparation programs. Descriptions of 45 promising programs are organized under four cluster headings: (1) pre-college programs (recruitment); (2) programs for recruitment from alternate pools; (3) college/university initiatives (recruitment within higher education and retention); and (4) marketing and placement of graduates. Samples of recruitment advertisements, pamphlets and fliers are included in some of the program descriptions. Appended are four papers which were used by the study group: (1) a draft report of the literature search conducted preliminary to this report; (2) program summary information; (3) a paper on recruiting black teachers; and (4) a comprehensive model for recruitment and retention of minority students.
