Overview

Despite multiple efforts to improve the education system’s approach to its teacher and principal talent, there has been little or no impact on instructional practice and student achievement. Not just another misguided "silver bullet," Strategic Management of Human Capital in Education offers a comprehensive and strategic approach to remedy these issues and to address what has become labeled as "talent and human capital."

Grounded in extensive research, this book extracts concepts and practices from the private sector to frame an approach to strategic human capital management in education. Drawing from cases, experiences, and deliberations of the National Task Force of the Strategic Management of Human Capital (SMHC)—a project created to reframe how the public education systems can address what is required to become strategic, talent-centric organizations—this book outlines a comprehensive framework for how to transform current human resource management practices into authentic, strategic talent management systems.

Strategic Management of Human Capital in Education guides educators towards putting more effective teachers, teacher leaders, and principals in the country’s schools, especially in poverty-impacted urban and rural communities, and in the process how to produce a quantum leap in student achievement. This book demonstrates how all human resource programs including recruitment, selection, placement, induction, professional development, evaluation/performance management, career progression, and compensation can be linked to and anchored by measures of teaching practice and measures of student performance, and that "aligning" all aspects of school system human relations operation can have powerful and positive impacts on both instructional quality and student learning.
