New Directions for State Teacher Policies.
Bray, Judith L.; And Others
This volume reports the results of an extensive study of state teacher policies and programs. It is based on the idea that the extraordinary level of state activity in recent years, if coupled with the interests and aspirations of teachers themselves, can be the foundation for a renewal of the teaching profession. Section 1 describes innovative state programs for recruiting, recognizing, rewarding and renewing educators. These selected programs illustrate one or more of the following characteristics: (1) cooperative planning; (2) research-based strategies; (3) adequate or innovative financing; (4) evidence of change in classrooms; and (5) revisions based on feedback from implementers. Section 2 charts a comprehensive survey of teacher policies in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The charts are organized into three broad chronological areas: preservice, induction, and inservice. (JD)
