Strengthening the Teacher Workforce through Selection Processes. Brief
Finster, Matthew; Jackson, Cara
National Comprehensive Center
The COVID-19 pandemic has created disruptions in the teacher workforce, including reductions-in-force due to budget cuts, hesitation from teachers to return in-person to the classroom, and relaxed standards for entering the profession. Even before the current pandemic, teacher hiring decisions were often late, rushed, and information-poor. Districts may be able to refine selection processes and add relevant tools to more reliably identify the most promising teacher candidates. This brief, aimed at district and school staff involved in the teacher selection process, provides literature-based recommendations to improve the teacher selection process as a cost-effective means of strengthening the teacher workforce.
