Tapping the Potential: Retaining and Developing High-Quality New Teachers

Jun 23, 2004


TappingThePotentialCoverAmerican schools spend more than $2.6 billion annually replacing teachers who have dropped out of the teaching profession. At a Capitol Hill briefing on June 23, the Alliance for Excellent Education released a new report which cites comprehensive induction, especially in a teacher’s first two years on the job, as the single effective strategy to stem the rapidly increasing teacher attrition rate.

The report, Tapping the Potential: Retaining and Developing High Quality New Teachers includes federal policy recommendations, in-depth analysis of new teacher induction practices, and four case studies: Connecticut BEST, Santa Cruz New Teacher Project (California), Tangipahoa FIRST (Louisiana), and The Toledo Plan (Ohio).
