Teacher Selection: A Training Model for Principals.
Shelton, Maria M.
The professional, systematic procedures school administrators use in selecting teachers and that educational administration departments use in training future administrators who hire teachers are presented in three parts. Part I discusses the pre-interview procedure, which is comprised of a position analysis, applicant paperwork, the recruitment advertisement, steps in teacher recruitment, and credential review. Part II examines the interview procedure. Subtopics include the interviewer's characteristics, interviewer training, the interview team, and interview and teacher selection. Part III analyzes the posthiring process. After a teacher is employed, the entire hiring procedure warrants evaluation. Given the demand for excellence in American education, teacher selection must follow systematic procedures. It is costly, time-consuming, administratively demanding and subject to personal bias. Because of these factors the pre-interview, interview, and post-hiring procedures must be scrutinized so that school systems employ the best-qualified teachers. (JAM)
