Title: CTR: TEACHERS WANTED: ATTRACTING AND RETAINING GOOD TEACHERS
Description:
The public school system in the United States faces a perpetual challenge in attracting and retaining well-qualified teachers. Author Daniel A. Heller provides an insider's view of the sources of this ongoing problem - and powerful suggestions for resolving it. He advocates partnerships between public schools and higher education to provide a real-world view of the profession to young teacher interns. At the heart of many of these changes stands the principal. From upholding the mission of the school, to interviewing and hiring teachers, to empowering staff to make decisions affecting their own work, to creating an atmosphere in the school that fosters professional development, the principal plays a key role in breathing new life into the teaching profession. 107 pages
