Teacher Recruitment & Retention
Standard 3: Human Resources Development

Revised by Antonia Littleton

The purpose of this professional study is to create more effective leaders who will impact schools and districts positively by evaluating and responding to teacher recruitment and retention issues. Because research shows that the effectiveness of teachers is the single most important determinant in education, this study will focus on the recruitment and retention of effective teachers. Increasing the salaries of teachers may lead to increased teacher recruitment and retention, however, there are other factors involved in recruiting and retaining effective educators. This professional study will discover many of those factors.
