Product Overview

"Improving teacher quality is a necessary--indeed, the key--ingredient for improving our nation's schools," the editors of Creating a New Teaching Profession conclude. But putting this advice into practice may require radical reforms in the way schools attract, retain, evaluate, and develop teachers. The scholars and practitioners in this book go beyond empirical research to offer private sector lessons and innovative reforms to jolt the teaching profession from complacency: Dan Goldhaber and Jane Hannaway on the urgent need to rethink human capital development in teaching; Alan S. Blinder on educating tomorrow's workforce; Sean P. Corcoran on proposed teacher training policies; Michael M. DeArmond, Kathryn L. Shaw, and Patrick M. Wright on human resource management in school districts; Dan Goldhaber on teacher development overseas; Frederick M. Hess on avenues for rethinking the teaching profession; Paul T. Hill on instructional technology; Eric A. Hanushek on teacher deselection; Steven G. Rivkin on performance-based pay systems; Robert M. Costrell, Richard W. Johnson, and Michael J. Podgursky on retirement benefits as incentives; Jennifer King Rice on effective professional development; David H. Monk on education that fits teachers' changing career paths; Joel I. Klein on challenges facing urban school superintendents; Randi Weingarten on the role of teachers' unions in reform; Andrew J. Rotherham on public policy that effectively supports teachers
