Summary

The Teacher Cadet Program (TCP) provides a course of study to encourage academically-able high school students to consider teaching as a career. Reported is an evaluation of the program's effectiveness based on data collected from a survey of college freshmen who were high school cadets, interviews with a sample of the surveyed college freshmen, and a parallel survey of current high school seniors. A summary of findings is presented, and descriptions and analyses are given of what a sample of today's college freshmen and high school seniors consider important for their prospective careers. Overall student expectations, attitudes and beliefs are reviewed and differences among them are discerned depending on students' gender, race, cadet status, and whether or not they intend to teach. A review is given of the specific effects that the TCP appears to be having as students make career decisions. Recommendations are made for program improvement as well as general recommendations for the recruitment of tomorrow's teachers. (JD)
