Recruiting Minority Teachers. A Practical Guide.
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
This publication was developed to meet an apparent need for new and effective strategies to recruit greater numbers of racial and ethnic minorities to the field of education. It deals specifically with prospective candidates who are Black, Hispanic, and Asian. The guide is organized in three sections. Part I, "Getting to Know the Target Group", is based on a 1988 American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education national survey of teacher education students and provides general background and preferences information on students by race and ethnicity. Part II, "Concern, Commitment, Collaboration, and Creativity: The Four Cs of Recruitment," describes strategies for recruiting individuals from various levels, namely precollege, college, and midcareer/nontraditional. Part III,"Recruitment Success Stories," describes programmatic and administrative elements of four university-based minority recruitment programs. (JD)
