Music Educator Vacancies in Faith-Based K-12 Schools in the United States: 2013-2014
Hash, Phillip M.
Update: Applications of Research in Music Education, v34 n1 p60-65 Nov 2015
The purpose of this study was to analyze and summarize characteristics of music educator vacancies in faith-based K-12 schools in the United States for the 2013-2014 academic year. Data extracted from placement notices and supplemental sources included demographic information, job responsibilities, and employment requirements for 153 listings in 41 states and the District of Columbia. The majority of openings sought music teachers capable of articulating a personal faith and working with multiple grade levels (elementary, middle school, high school) and content areas (general, choral, instrumental). Additional findings related to full-time equivalent status, nonmusic duties, and required/preferred applicant certification, experience, and faith/denominational membership. This research will help specify requirements and expectations for music teachers in faith-based schools to (a) identify qualified candidates, (b) aid potential applicants in the job search process, and (c) inform music teacher educators how best to advise and prepare students for these educational settings.
