Rick Hess on Recruiting the Teachers of the Future

May 22, 2009

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

The new edition of Education Next is online, and Rick Hess has a very interesting article on modernizing the teaching profession. Rick notes that we need to update bedrock assumptions-such as assuming that the dominant model of teaching recruitment should rest on recruiting 20 year olds into colleges of education and then expecting them to teach for the next 30 or 40 years. Lots of interesting suggestions on technology, compensation and alternative certification.

Great article, well worth reading.
