Editorial Reviews

William J. Bushaw
America must intentionally recruit great teachers beginning in high school because at the end of the day, great teachers make great schools. In her book, Dr. Embry Jenlink assembled descriptions of the best teacher recruitment and induction programs in the U.S. Her book is carefully researched and thoughtfully edited. I highly recommend it to anyone who is committed to transforming America's schools, making them the best in the world.
Faye Snodgress
Teacher Preparation in Career Pathways: An Emerging Portrait of America's Teacher Pipeline offers important insights about the multiculturalization of today's classroom and presents compelling arguments and strategies for recruiting and retaining a diverse teacher workforce. This timely book is an excellent resource for informing the dialogue on possible changes in teacher preparation models to address the need for teachers from underrepresented populations and critical subject fields.

"The complexities of our modern world present constant challenges for today's classroom teachers. In the teacher career pathway model presented byProfessor Karen Embry Jenlink, she provides an intelligent and well-designed blueprint for developing highly qualified teachers who will be equipped to meet those challenges."
David Ritchey
The role of excellent teachers, particularly in high-needs schools, selected teaching fields, and underserved populations, has been recognized as the most important in-school factor in individual student performance. Teacher Preparation in Career Pathways: The Future of America's Teacher Pipeline represents a comprehensive look at emerging teacher recruitment and preparation models which seek to answer this growing need for great teachers.
Belinda Gimbert Ph.D.
Teacher Preparation in Career Pathways recognizes and inspires educators who courageously innovate to prepare teachers along a career pathway that addresses persistent teacher shortages in geographic areas with chronic hiring needs and ongoing vacancies. Exfoliating threats to teacher supply due to impending retirements and changing P-12 student demographics render this book as a must read for deans, superintendents, university and college professors, teachers, and parents. The authors trumpet a reverberating call for responsive teacher preparation across the United States that resound our urgent charge to recruit, train, and retain a more diverse teacher workforce in critical fields in high-need schools.
