Overview

Teacher Preparation in Career Pathways: The Future of America’s Teacher Pipeline offers a critical and timely discussion of what teacher preparation ought to look like in the twenty-first century and why. Embry-Jenlink speaks directly to decreasing quality in America’s teacher workforce and the dismal recruitment of teachers from historically underrepresented and underserved populations. The voices of deans, faculty, school administrators, and directors of non-profit agencies resound with an emerging workforce solution, Teacher Preparation in Career Pathways.

The authors showcase five diverse teacher pipeline programs that address the staffing demands in high need schools through “grow your own” approaches as they explore policy issues, resource sharing, accountability, and promoting successful postsecondary student transfer across articulated teacher preparation programs. Teacher Preparation in Career Pathways is the first book of its kind to profile an emerging, innovative approach to teacher preparation in the twenty-first century—teacher preparation that is designed around collaborative and sustainable P-16 partnerships among school districts, colleges, and universities to strategically address persistent issues of building teacher quality, capacity, and diversity.

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.
Ken Zornes
The complexities of our modern world present constant challenges for today's classroom teachers. In the teacher career pathway model presented by Professor 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 under served 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.
