Center for the Study of the Teaching Profession: Annual Report, October 1987 to September 1988.
Rand Corp., Washington, DC.
In 1985, the Rand Corporation launched the Center for the Study of the Teaching Profession (CSTP) to study and facilitate the emergence of a new model of accountability in education. The mission of the CSTP is briefly described. Areas in which research has been completed over the past 3 years are presented: teacher education and licensing; teacher selection and evaluation; teacher supply and demand; and educational reform. In addition to Rand's own publications, CSTP research is also disseminated through journal articles and book chapters, RAND notes, commission reports, and newspaper "op-ed" pieces. A list of these sources is provided. Work currently under way in the four areas related to teacher quality and supply is listed. A partial list of the agencies and associations directly addressed through presentations by CSTP staff members is provided as well as a list of the organization's management and staff. (SI)
