Summary

The low number of blacks either enrolling in teacher education programs or available for teaching positions has been documented in numerous studies. However, not only do black college students not choose education as often as other professions, but black high school students do not choose to attend college as readily as members of other minority groups. Should these trends continue, minority group teachers may represent as little as five percent of the national teaching force by the turn of the century. Black teachers are needed to serve as role models, to teach cultural diversity, and to supplement the projected general teacher shortage. Various strategies have been suggested to encourage blacks and other minorities to enter the teaching profession. Those that involve increased salaries, raised status for classroom teachers, teacher empowerment, and reform of teacher education programs are not likely to be implemented. Strategies that focus on minority-specific recruitment, two-year and four-year college partnerships, and alternative certification procedures are more likely to be implemented. A list of 33 references is appended. (Author/FMW)
