Attracting the Best Teachers to Schools That Need Them Most
Walsh, Kate; Putman, Hannah; Lewis, Autumn
State Education Standard, v15 n2 p25-31 May 2015
Teaching is a difficult profession in ideal circumstances. The job requires immense talent and training when students have the overwhelming challenges associated with poverty. Teachers will succeed only if they are given excellent preparation and valuable fieldwork experience with effective teachers. School boards and leaders can and must insist that teacher prep programs step up to this challenge. If their teachers do not receive the training and support they need, students will continue to be denied the education that will ensure they meet and exceed high expectations. This article discusses ideas on how to attract the best teachers.
