Gutierrez, Veronica
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Texas A&M University - Kingsville
Rural schools are struggling to fill their classrooms with highly qualified teachers. Although the criteria, as per the federal government, for identifying a teacher as highly qualified is quite simple the criteria in the perspective of rural administrators is rather complex. The challenge of identifying teachers as highly qualified to teach in rural schools has serious implications with regard to recruiting and hiring practices used by rural administrators. This qualitative study sought the perspective of rural administrators in South Texas who are responsible for recruiting and hiring teachers. The results from this study will not only provide information to rural administrators with regard to recruiting and hiring practices, but this study will be informative to teachers seeking jobs in rural communities given it will share the insights of rural administrators and the attributes they are seeking in a highly qualified rural teacher.
