Attracting and Retaining High-Quality Professionals in Science Education.
Weld, Jeffrey
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n7 p536-39 Mar 1998
To attract and retain high-quality teachers, the education system must address science teachers' sense of professional isolation, administrators' lack of receptivity to thoughtful teachers' ideas, egalitarian salary compensation schemes, and lack of professional recognition. An outstanding chemistry teacher-turned-pharmaceutical saleswoman is profiled as an example of wasted talent. Two Internet programs may reduce isolation. (18 references) (MLH)
