Alternative Certification
  • Does Your School District Need More and Better Teachers?
  • Ones Who Will Stay Longer and Achieve More
  • Do You Want To Avoid Teacher Turnover?
  • And Costly, Time-Consuming Teacher selections?

If so, get us involved in your school district. We can teach you better ways to select and hire teachers, and how to select for the special talents and temperaments you so desperately need. We'll tell you about our well-researched teacher interview and how you can learn to use it. Whole school systems large and small, from urban San Francisco Unified (CA) to rural Uvalde ISD (TX) now are enjoying greater student achievement, better morale, and fewer teacher turnovers as a result of improved teacher selection.

To learn more about alternative certification see Chapter 43, Handbook of Research on Teacher Education, Ed. John Sikula, Macmillan (1996). This lengthy chapter has been excerpted, with permission from MacMillan, and new materials have been added into an economical summary and expansion of Chapter 43 in the Handbook of Teacher Education Research. The new volume on alternative teacher certification, the only book of its kind, includes materials on how to recognize a good alternative program, why they are crucial, how laws should be written to encourage maximum access for diverse populations, and includes extensive current bibliography on alternative teacher certification research.
