Steuteville-Brodinsky, Mary; And Others
Strategies for teacher selection, recruitment, and retention are summarized in this report, which is based on results of a national survey of trends, practices, and opinions of school administrators. Thirteen chapters are contained in three sections, which deal specifically with the teacher selection, recruitment, and retention processes. The first part on teacher selection provides information on the qualities of good teaching, traits for excellence, standards for teacher selection, and selection procedures and strategies. Part 2 on teacher recruitment describes locating areas of teacher supply, planning the recruitment effort, and improving recruitment strategies. Part 3 examines factors for teacher commitment and mobility, outlines strategies for keeping quality teachers, identifies factors for teacher retention, and discusses the role of salary schedules and incentives for growth. Examples of successful school district strategies are included at the end of each section. (LMI)
