Abstract

This paper discusses the importance of education in modern society and explores the post-WWII factors negatively affecting teacher recruitment. The author analyzes teacher recruitment and retention methods through interviews and surveys. Results indicate that pay, coupled society’s negative attitudes toward teaching, prevent qualified young people from seeing teaching as a legitimate, desirable profession. The author draws particular attention to schools’ inconsistent attitudes towards recruitment strategies and the teacher selection process. The author presents several possible methods for teacher selection, including soliciting group/staff input and establishing a hiring committee.
