Robert, Catherine – Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, 2022
Teachers who are married to other teachers within a school district often experience their personal life events in full view of the school community. How should a principal respond when a math teacher wants to leave due to her divorce, knowing that math teachers are hard to find? Challenges in this case for campus principals and human resource…

Bates, Michael D.; Dinerstein, Michael; Johnston, Andrew C.; Sorkin, Isaac – National Bureau of Economic Research, 2022
We study whether reallocating existing teachers across schools within a district can increase student achievement, and what policies would help achieve these gains. Using a model of multi-dimensional value-added, we find meaningful achievement gains from reallocating teachers within a district. Using an estimated equilibrium model of the teacher…

Balyer, Aydin; Bakay, Mehmet Emin – Journal of Education and Learning, 2022
Academic inbreeding is a recruitment practice for universities of hiring their own graduates as future academicians. Despite its benefits, it may have damaging effects on the academy. From this point of view, this qualitative research investigated whether academic inbreeding brings benefits to universities or poses risks. It was also purposed to…

Macfarlane, Bruce; Jefferson, Alison Elizabeth – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
Academic inbreeding is a deeply ingrained practice which needs to be understood by reference to the medieval guilds. Drawing on the guild concept and associated benefits of forms of capital, a distinction is drawn between 'guild-route' academics who have followed a privileged, linear path into academe and their 'non-guild' counterparts who tend to…

Horta, Hugo; Meoli, Michele; Santos, João M. – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
Academic inbreeding is a phenomenon that has been studied mostly from the standpoint of its association with research productivity. The focus has been on knowledge creation outputs and outcomes, while little to no attention has been given to the association of academic inbreeding with knowledge creation strategies and processes in academia. This…

Agan, Marie Little Fawn; Joseph, Reni; Rivera-Figueroa, Armando; Chan, Benny C.; O'Connor, Abby R.; Ondrechen, Mary Jo; Jones, Wayne E., Jr.; Dorhout, Peter K.; Kimble-Hill, Ann C. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2022
Many academic institutions have looked at various ways to make their faculty a more diverse and inclusive group of people that better reflect the demographic swath of their current and future student bodies. This is even more so important in chemistry departments, where there has long been a discussion on the "leaky pipeline" for women…

Jones, Glen A.; Jefferson, Alison Elizabeth – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
This paper illuminates how three distinct but complementary concepts can be used to explain the prevalence of inbreeding in some contexts and the absence or limited frequency of inbreeding in others. The concepts of internal and external labour markets can be useful in understanding the academic labour market conditions that may support or…

China's phenomenal growth in higher education has received increasing scholarly attention, particularly its initiative to build world-class universities.

Benz, Pierre; Bühlmann, Felix; Mach, André – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2021
Over the recent decades, the turn to managerial governance has thoroughly transformed the European university systems and, by extension, the careers of university professors. Scholars postulated that professors' careers have undergone an increasing formalization, that disciplinary careers have been hybridized, and that new modes of selection and…

Holcombe, Amy; Peeples, Shannon Brown; Johnson, Tina – Educational Leadership, 2021
Principal preparation programs devote very little time to showing future principals how to recruit, hire, support, and retain solid teachers. Yet school staff are a major part of every school budget and have one of the biggest impacts on student achievement, so hiring and retaining talent is key. The authors give specific actions and approaches…

Biasi, Barbara; Fu, Chao; Stromme, John – National Bureau of Economic Research, 2021
We study the equity-efficiency implication of giving school districts control over teacher pay using an equilibrium model of the market for public-school teachers. Teachers differ in their comparative advantages in teaching low- or high-achieving students. School districts, which serve different student bodies, use both wage and hiring strategies…

Kladder, Jonathan – Research and Issues in Music Education, 2021
The criteria used to admit prospective music teachers in colleges and universities across the United States has remained relatively unchanged since their inception. These criteria disenfranchise a population of potential music teachers who hold musical backgrounds outside the Western European art tradition. This autoethnography illuminates the…

Seeber, Marco; Mampaey, Jelle – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
Studies on academic inbreeding have mostly focused on institutional inbreeding and its negative effects, whereas little research has explored its causes. We identify current explanations of the macro-, meso- and micro-level factors that sustain academic inbreeding as well as research gaps. We address a main research gap regarding what macro-level…
