Troops to Teachers Update: Changing, but Still Pleasing Principals with High Teaching Quality
Owings, William A.; Kaplan, Leslie S.; Khrabrova, Iryna; Chappell, Shanan
NASSP Bulletin, v99 n1 p70-98 Mar 2015
Prior research on Troops to Teachers (TTT) affirms that TTTs are effective instructors likely to work in high-poverty, high-minority schools, teach high-demand subjects, use research-based instructional and classroom management practices linked with student achievement, and plan to stay in the profession. A nonexperimental, mixed method design incorporating quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis was used. A total of 4,157 TTT completers and 517 administrators responded to surveys. The 2012-2013 follow-up study finds that TTTs are meeting most--but not all--the same high benchmarks. In addition, 92% of principals rate their TTTs as well-prepared to meet the needs of diverse learners in varied learning environments.
