Recruiting Teachers to High-Need Schools: A Career Pathway that Builds on California's Afterschool Infrastructure. Afterschool Policy Brief
Children Now
Effective teachers are the most important component in high-quality education systems. Teachers are on the front line of education every day, carrying the responsibility for ensuring students are college- and career-ready upon graduation. As such, teachers also play a pivotal role in California's economic engine and prosperity. The state's current teacher shortage and severe budget crisis require public, nonprofit and private institutions to work together and develop new strategies to meet the demand for skilled and knowledgeable teachers. This policy brief highlights an innovative approach to recruiting and preparing effective teachers, one that involves developing stronger partnerships, capitalizing on the availability of new federal resources and expanding promising models. The success of local career ladder initiatives in developing high-quality teachers points to a larger opportunity to leverage California's afterschool infrastructure in meeting the need for effective teachers.
