The Characteristics Sought by Public School Leaders of Applicants for Teaching Positions
Stultz, Sherry L.
SRATE Journal, v24 n2 p14-24 Sum 2015
This study examined the characteristics of teacher applicants that are sought by public school systems in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The Superintendents of each of the public school districts in the Commonwealth were surveyed. A total of 99 respondents completed the survey (n = 99). This response rate of 57.2% was well-above the average for this type of instrument. The results of the survey will be of interest to job applicants, school system leaders, and the colleges that are preparing preservice teachers to enter the workforce. Implications for each of these groups are discussed in this article. In addition, recommendations for future research are provided.
