Teachers' Academic Preparation and Commitment To Teach Math and Science.
LaTurner, R. Jason
Teaching and Teacher Education, v18 n6 p653-63 Aug 2002
Used data from the Baccalaureate and Beyond study to examine different paths to teaching grades 6-12 math and science taken by recent U.S. college graduates and differences in experiences and commitment toward teaching. Only 46.6 percent of new teachers were minimally qualified. Those with math or science certification were most likely to be committed to teaching, though they varied in their commitment depending on coursework preparation. (SM)
