Summary

A series of case studies examined the problems of the teacher labor market (such as difficulty in recruiting high quality teachers) and explored avenues for supplying schools with effective teachers. The case studies were based primarily upon 525 interviews with (or surveys of) teachers, school and university administrators, teacher education students, and noneducation college majors. The studies sought to illuminate: (1) the attractors and deterrents to teaching; (2) teacher recruitment and selection processes; (3) mobility and attrition patterns of teachers; and (4) the conditions in which teachers work. Findings indicated: (1) teachers still are motivated primarily because of the intrinsic rewards of working with children or adolescents; (2) many teachers are presently negative role models for recruiting new teachers; (3) school systems have not actively recruited education students and teachers; (4) school systems may recruit better teachers by assisting promising students in pursuit of graduate degrees; (5) in the past, recruitment of teachers has been facilitated by eased entry; (6) increased incentives are important because they are a direct expression of how society values education; and (7) the conditions in which teachers work and the lessons students learn while in public school are the primary forces in today's teacher labor market.
