Recruiting, Retaining, and Fairly Compensating Our Teachers
Lynch, Matthew
International Journal of Progressive Education, v8 n2 p121-135 Jun 2012
This article examines three interlinked problems facing public schools today: how to recruit, retain, and pay our teachers. The article begins with an overview of the current situation in the United States, paying particular attention to schools in areas where minorities are the majority. It goes on to examine some of the causes of teacher attrition, with a special section on charter schools, which have a unique set of problems. Finally, it looks at the effects of in-school policies such as teacher pre-service and in-service programs, and then discusses several successful programs around the country, including the TAP model and the Missouri Career Ladder.
