McLevie, John G.
This document presents data and findings from a study and review that analyzed how to effectively recruit and support a diverse population of teachers for California schools as they enter the 21st Century. Section 1 presents a review of California itself, its multicultural population and education needs, teacher candidate pipelines, and opinions on why minority students often enter college but do not complete degrees. Section 2 presents an overview of college programs that recruit diverse teachers and data on these gathered through surveys of their effectiveness. Section 3 looks at preparation programs that recruit diverse teachers including state programs, traditional and alternative programs, and national studies of effective programs. Section 4 covers elementary and secondary school programs for early identification of potential teachers. Section 5 examines teacher recruitment models from other states. Section 6 presents the research findings, which cover state need, lack of statewide planning, mixed data, commitment, programs that succeed, and advice to legislators and other policymakers. Section 7 tenders eight policy recommendations. Appendixes contain information on methodology, programs and locations visited, conference agenda, directory of state contacts in the para-educator recruitment program and teacher recruitment program, and a San Diego City School/Education Fund Teacher Education Scholarship Program Application package. Each section contains references. (JB)
