Profile of Teachers in the U.S. 2011
National Center for Education Information
July 2011


Abstract:

The National Center for Education Information released this survey report which finds that four out of 10 new teachers hired since 2005 came through alternative teacher-preparation programs.  The survey also found that alternative-route teachers are more in favor of using reforms such as performance pay, elimination of tenure, and tying student achievement to teacher evaluations than are their traditionally prepared counterparts.
