Recruiting Teachers in Colombia
Blair, Robert
Phi Delta Kappan, v91 n2 p33-35 Oct 2009
In this article, the author talks about a system of special schools in Colombia which introduces students to teaching careers as early as the 8th grade. The Colombian system is based on a simple idea: Every student is a potential teacher. Principals talk about molding "ciudadano-pedagogos"--citizen-educators who view teaching as a way of interacting with society, not just as a profession. Through the Colombian system, students already are experienced teachers by the time they graduate from high school.
