Picking Linebackers or Athletes: Reframing the Risks in Teacher Recruitment
Pomson, Alex
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v13 n4 p11-21 Dec 2010
Set in a private parochial high school, this case invites consideration of the costs and benefits in a range of tactics that schools use for teacher recruitment. The case calls attention to the technical solutions that make one particular school an adept recruiter of teachers and to the extensive human and social capital at its disposal. At the same time, below the surface of the case lurk questions about how the tactics of teacher recruitment are complicated or undermined by an unspoken set of understandings about what makes successful teaching possible, and about the school's role in nurturing such success.
