Teacher Corps Alumni Network.
Selected papers are presented from two symposia addressing the need for recruitment and retention of minority persons into education. The first, by Bess C. Howard, offers an historical perspective on black educators and discusses the need for recruiting Black teachers. In the second paper, Judy Minier discusses the role played by the Teacher Corps in encouraging Native American teachers. William Smith offers insights into the role of government in developing the Peace Corps and the Teacher Corps. In the fourth paper, Thomas W. Hewitt addresses minority recruitment and career path building. The final paper, by Ruben D. Olivarez, speaks on the existing conditions in Texas in the area of minority teacher recruitment and retention. Each of the papers presents the state of the problem in the topic area, directions to be taken, and the role of the Teacher Corps Alumni Network in expediting change. (JD)
