Reexamining the African American Teacher Shortage: Building a New Professional Image of Teaching for the Twenty-First Century.
Wilder, Margaret
Equity & Excellence in Education, v32 n3 p77-82 Dec 1999
Examined how schooling experiences related to minority students' views about teaching careers, focusing on the African American teacher shortage. Interviews with diverse college freshmen indicated that most would not pursue teaching careers for three reasons: not having patience for teaching, classroom behavior problems, and low salaries. Those who chose teaching as a career emphasized the importance of positive role models. (SM)
