May Issue Brief: Effective Teacher Hiring Practices

Every year, schools must hire new teachers to replace the nearly 15 percent who leave annually. But what if schools are doing it wrong?

In Core Education’s May issue brief, we explore the data science behind teacher hiring, look at the teacher characteristics that have the most impact on teacher effectiveness and retention, and benchmark the investments in human capital in the education field against other sectors. We also review suggestions for more strategic approaches to student teaching as well as applicant screening to improve the quality of a district’s teacher pipeline.
