Personnel Policy in Traditional Public, Private, and Charter Schools
Metadata[+] Show full item record
A major policy discussion in K-12 education today concerns the issue of teacher quality. Research suggests that one of the most important contributions of schools to student achievement gains is the quality of classroom teachers. Much of the policy debate focuses on the issue of teacher licensing. However, recruiting, retaining, and motivating a high quality teaching workforce depends fundamentally on the personnel policies of public schools and not on teacher licensing. One area of innovation for charter schools is in the area of personnel policy. This paper reports preliminary results comparing personnel policies in traditional public, private, and charter schools from a major new national survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Education.
