Ochoa, Alberto M.
This publication evaluates the New Teacher Retention Title VII Project conducted at San Diego State University. The Project addressed the following national problems: (1) the need to upgrade the skills of bilingual and other teachers working with children who have limited English proficiency; (2) provision of training in order to increase teacher retention; and (3) development of inservice training to enhance the professional development of bilingual teachers. The document, organized into five sections, opens with the executive summary. Section 2 describes the background of the project, including goals, social context, California and San Diego County bilingual teacher needs, personnel training, and the training approach. Section 3 discusses the project methodology. Section 4, divided into five parts, examines training evaluation results, increasing teachers' bilingual skills, support systems for new bilingual teachers, new teacher retention program, and future new teacher retention program suggestions. The final section summarizes findings. Four appendices include: (1) Title VII Bilingual Teacher Program Survey; (2) Evaluation of New Bilingual Teacher Program; (3) Sample Case Study and Critical Incident Guidelines; and (4) Participant Responses to Program Suggestions.
