A Model for Recruitment and Retention of Minority Students to Teaching: Lessons from a School-University Partnership
Ayalon, Aram
Teacher Education Quarterly, v31 n3 p7-23 Sum 2004
This article documents implementation and critically reflects upon the results of a partnership between a predominately white rural college and a multicultural urban school district. The partnership was intended both to recruit high school students of color from an urban school to teacher education and to encourage teacher candidates from a rural college to seek employment in urban areas. Establishing a school-university partnership is a challenging task, and the literature suggests that few school-university collaborations exist. The paths to collaboration among the partnerships that do exist are not well documented. Furthermore, no literature was found on collaborations between rural colleges and urban K-12 schools with the primary goal of recruiting students of color to teaching. The present article describes the main elements of such a program and the most helpful and most challenging aspects of developing a partnership. It also lists lessons learned from this endeavor.
