The Highly Qualified Teacher: Implications and Recommendations for Rural School Districts
Jean-Marie, Gaetane; Moore, George W.
Teacher Education and Practice, v17 n2 p146-161 Spr 2004
A long-standing problem for rural school districts is recruiting and retaining quality teachers for their classrooms. The lack of resources, low salary and incentives, and personal and professional isolation are some reasons why fewer good teachers choose to work in rural schools. In order to address the challenges facing rural schools, states and school districts must focus attention on various approaches to overcome rural problems. In this article, teacher quality issues (e.g., recruitment, retention, and ongoing support and development for teachers) in rural areas in relation to No Child Left Behind are closely examined.
