Avoiding the Teacher Shortage: A Mission Possible.
Bell, David; Steinmiller, Georgine
Addressing the problem of the current and future shortage of teachers, this paper lists concrete suggestions on recruiting and retaining teachers. Fifteen suggestions are made which may serve as a foundation for a state-wide teacher recruitment plan. The recruitment plan at the state level should lead to plans at the university level to further refine these state level suggestions. Fourteen specific suggestions are made for recruiting and retaining teachers at the university level. In order to understand the basic issues relating to student recruitment into teaching, and to provide options to enhance recruitment efforts at the state and university level, 12 suggestions are made for recruitment plans that may be used nationally.
