A Comparison of Elementary, Middle, and High School Principals’ Teacher Selection Practices

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In an effort to attract and hire highly qualified teachers for all learners, the No Child Left Behind Act mandated that all children receive an equitable, quality education (National Association of Secondary School Principals, 2003). With increasing enrollments, teacher attrition, and various local, state, and federal mandates, school districts across the U.S. have found themselves in a quandary regarding locating “highly qualified” teachers. “Highly qualified teachers” and “high quality teachers” are not synonymous because it is possible for a teacher to meet the mandates for a “highly qualified” endorsement, yet not exhibit qualities of an effective teacher (Stronge, 2007). Teacher recruitment and selection – as well as retention - are vital in ensuring students receive an education under the tutelage of capable and high quality teachers.
