Selecting "Star" Teachers for Children and Youth in Urban Poverty.
Haberman, Martin
Phi Delta Kappan, v76 n10 p777-81 Jun 1995
The surest way to improve schooling for 12 million children in poverty is to get them better teachers. The problem is selection, not training. "Star" urban teachers persistently engage their students, protect and enhance student learning opportunities, easily apply generalizations, succeed despite students' life conditions, genuinely respect students, transcend bureaucratic obstacles, and admit mistakes.
