Beyond Band-Aid Solutions: A Multifaceted, Collaborative Approach to the Minority Teacher Shortage.
Goodwin, A. Lin
This paper describes the work of one collaborative--The Consortium on Teacher Quality and Supply--that combined the energies of several organizations in order to respond to the minority teacher shortage. The consortium was comprised of six historically black colleges and universities in the south and three graduate institutions of education. Chronologically, the paper begins with the establishment of the consortium in 1987, the introduction of key players, and a discussion of aims. It then moves to the collaborative process the consortium underwent, explains the activities designed by the consortium to address the minority teacher shortage, and ends with a progress report on current consortium activities. Conceptually, the paper examines the collaborative process in relation to what the literature has to say about successful collaborations, and uncovers some new understandings about factors which help support and facilitate collaboration.
