Teacher Shortages in Urban Schools: The Role of Traditional and Alternative Certification Routes in Filling the Voids.
Ng, Jennifer C.
Education and Urban Society, v35 n4 p380-98 Aug 2003
Examines the impact of teacher recruitment approaches via university-based and alternative certification programs. Asserts that traditional and alternative certification efforts are by themselves limited in their potential to address the problem of teacher shortages in urban schools. Suggests that an organizational view of schools, which looks beyond individual teachers as lone indicators of instructional performance and educational equity, might better guide future research and policy formation.
