NATIONAL ECONOMY
EC-N-1-3:
“Because community colleges are affordable, welcoming, and community-based, they are
critical vehicles for getting 18- to 24- year-old students started and keeping them on the
higher education highway. Currently, about 30 percent of community college students
transfer to four-year schools in order to take advantage of the expanding career options
that go with a four-year degree. Successful transitions from two- to four-year institutions
will become all the more important as the minimum education qualification for good jobs
and elite jobs continues to go up.”
EC-N-1-4:
 “…upwardly mobile ethnic and racial groups will rely on community colleges as their
on-ramp to the higher education highway. This is especially true for Hispanic
students…”
EC-N-1-11:
“The economy not only requires more academic skill to get jobs but also a whole new set
of more general skills, such as leadership, problem solving, and communication.”
EC-N-1-12:
“The proportion of low-wage service-industry jobs that require high school or less is not
growing. The number of high-paying blue-collar jobs available to workers with high
school diplomas is shrinking. Job growth is concentrated in managerial, professional,
technical, healthcare, and education occupations, which generally require college-level
skills…”
EC-N-1-15:
“Hispanic and African American workers are underrepresented in high-tech fields.”
EC-N-1-16:
“If low-wage services jobs and high-tech jobs are not growing, and factory jobs are
declining, where are all the new jobs we keep hearing about coming from?…The growth
is coming primarily from three areas: education, healthcare, and white-collar office jobs
throughout the rest of the economy.
EC-N-1-19:
“Community colleges maintain a unique position among educational institutions as
providers of both skill training and academic knowledge.”
EC-N-1-20:
“Postsecondary education, especially at community colleges, has become our real school-
to-work system and our worker training and retraining system.”

EC-N-1-21:
“Strengthening collaborations between employers and community colleges satisfies both
the public interest in enhanced individual career development and the private interest in
increased competitiveness…Today, it is the education people get outside the workplace
that ultimately counts the most. They can still make progress by learning on the job, but
they have to get the job first.”

Study: Community colleges one answer to teacher shortage


D:\Docstoc\Working\pdf\6b7966e0-ba5a-448e-a419-0e642d440948.doc                             1
Faced with a nationwide teacher shortage that promises to become more chronic with
time, both the CTE and traditional K-12 communities are examining ways to recruit
qualified teachers. While the CTE field continues to debate if alternative teacher
certification is the answer to its teacher shortage, some in traditional education are
pointing to community colleges and their teacher preparation programs as one of a
number of viable solutions that deserve a second glance.

Recruit New Teachers, Inc. (RNT), a national nonprofit organization that seeks to expand
the pool of prospective teachers and increase recruitment, has released a study that
identifies the community college as an untapped source of prospective teachers for K-12
schools.

According to the U.S. Department of Education, 2.4 million teachers will be needed over
the next decade to staff the nation?s K-12 schools - this is nearly equal the number of
teachers currently in public schools. America is in the grips of the most severe teacher
shortage in 40 years. As a result, there has been increased support for alternative
licensure procedures permitting individuals without the traditional teacher education
training, but a degree in the content area, to become certified. But with 20 percent of
current teachers having begun their education at community colleges, "Tapping Potential:
Community College Students and America's Teacher Recruitment Challenge" argues that
more resources should be allocated to teacher preparation programs at the community
college level. After all, community colleges have a long history of serving the needs of
the workforce in every profession. Increased focus on this pool, the study notes, could
result in the reduction of the shortage by one-quarter or more.

RNT, with funding from the Carnegie Corporation, conducted a national study to identify
best practices and policies to strengthen teacher preparation programs at the community
college level, particularly in urban areas where the need is most conspicuous. "Tapping
Potential" incorporates data collected from 50 states, and interviews with state
department representatives from eight states with the largest community college student
populations. Six community college teaching programs became RNT's benchmark for
success because they responded to local teacher shortages; the need for teachers in
particular subjects such as math, science, and bilingual education; and to the shortage of
qualified teachers in urban schools.

The study notes that the pool of qualified teacher candidates has dwindled precipitously
as a result of retirements, increased enrollment, and class-size reduction initiatives. In
many instances, school leaders are forced to offer talented teachers cash bonuses and
other incentives to take appointments in their district, and emergency certification is often
issued to recent college graduates in order to fill the gap. While states have sought to
increase the rigor of traditional programs, they have also allowed alternative routes
licensure as a temporary solution to address staffing shortages. Some educators worry
that standards have been compromised, particularly in urban areas where the need for
qualified teachers is most pronounced. A 1998 study by Education Week, "Quality
Counts '98. The Urban Challenge: Public Education in the 50 states", found that urban



D:\Docstoc\Working\pdf\6b7966e0-ba5a-448e-a419-0e642d440948.doc                             2
schoolchildren were twice as likely as their suburban counterparts to have unlicensed
teachers or those with emergency certification. In some instances, the percentage of
unlicensed or under-licensed teachers in urban districts was as high as 31 percent,
compared to 7 percent in suburban districts.

"It's been one of the ironies in this profession," said Mildred Hudson, the principal
investigator for the RNT study, and CEO of Recruit New Teachers. "Students who need
qualified teachers the most are the least likely to get them."

Hudson added that increasingly, new teachers go into urban school districts to learn their
craft, and then make a speedy departure for the more attractive suburban districts that
offer less culture shock and more money. Research shows that 30-50 percent of new
teachers leave urban districts in one to five years. "Quality Counts" notes that in 1996, 59
percent of eight-graders in urban districts had at least one teacher leave during the school
year, compared to 27 percent in suburban districts.

"Tapping Potential" contends that America's teacher recruitment challenge can be
overcome if more attention is paid to the thousands of prospective teachers within the
community college system who come from diverse backgrounds and are less likely to
depart from their communities after receiving the necessary training.

"One of the interesting aspects of this study is that they come from the neighborhoods
and they want to teach in these areas," said Elizabeth Foster, a policy and research
associate with RNT. "It's an interesting pool because they are engrained in the
community." It is the community colleges' "open access to all" credo combined with
flexibility and low-cost tuition/fees that benefit a wide range of individuals, Hudson said.

Findings
Based on evaluations at six sites, RNT found that teacher training programs at
community colleges are effective if they:


Establish clear goals.
Demonstrate strong leadership.
Hire dedicated and demanding faculty.
Design well-placed and consistent recruitment efforts.
Plan a relevant and coherent curriculum.
Create partnerships with four-year institutions.
Provide student support.
Ensure adequate funding.
Assess and monitor students in the program.
Both Hudson and Foster say that though community colleges offer promise in easing the
teacher shortage, they are by no means a panacea. They argue, however, that more money
should be invested in this particular area because community colleges offer solutions to
increase and diversify the cadre of teachers ? the latter necessary to mirror America ?s
diverse student body.

"A key issue is one of diversity," Hudson said. "This is a practical way to diversify
America ?s teaching force." The study contends that recruitment success is contingent on
integral collaborative efforts between community colleges, four-year colleges, local/state
and federal policymakers. The study's authors have made the following
recommendations:

Community colleges
Incorporate teacher preparation into their mission and strategic plan.
Design teacher preparation programs that provide students with relevant, demanding
coursework.
Document the successful academic and teaching careers of current and former students.
Advocate for assessment measures that accurately gauge student and program success.
Strengthen inter-institutional collaborations through articulation agreements.
Provide consistent funding to teacher preparation programs.


Four-year colleges
Identify strong candidates for teaching by working with community college programs.
Create formal articulation agreements and develop long-term collaborations with
community colleges.
Provide reduced tuition, scholarships, dual enrollment programs and support systems for
community college education students.
Provide release time and support for faculty members.
Research the strengths of nontraditional and transfer students.
Policymakers
Fund initiatives that cultivate strong students at community colleges.
Support a transfer process from the community college to four-year colleges.
Facilitate the development of models built on best practices.


RNT is not the only organization taking notice of community colleges and the role they
can play to ease the teacher shortage debacle. Sandra Feldman, president of the American
Federation of Teachers, was in attendance when RNT released the study?s findings at a
press conference last week.

"This report demonstrates that community colleges can and do offer students sound
preparation for a teaching career - particularly through a rigorous liberal arts program,"
she said.

"We need more of this, and this report shines a light on how it can and should be done."

RNT now plans to "keep these issues in the public's eye" by participating in national
meetings, workshops, and by writing articles in various journals and publications.
Hudson will also present RNT's findings to the National Governor's Association and to
community colleges across the United States.

Footnotes:
(1) The quartile rankings of Occupational Employment Statistics Survey annual
earnings data are presented in the following categories: VH=very high ($43,605
and over), H=high ($28,590 to $43,604), L=low ($20,185 to $28,589), and
VL=very low(up to $20,184). The rankings were based on quartiles using one-
fourth of total employment to define each quartile. Earnings are for wage and
salary workers.
(2) An occupation is placed into one of 11 categories that best describes the
postsecondary education or training needed by most workers to become fully
qualified. For more information about the categories, see Occupational Projections
and Training Data, 2004-05 edition, Bulletin 2572 (Bureau of Labor Statistics,
March 2004) and Occupational Projections and Training Data, 2006-07 edition,

 [1] Job openings are the sum of new jobs and net replacements for the total 10 years.
 Some occupations may have declining employment

     during the projection period due to industry change, however, they have a substantial
 number of job openings due to the need for replacements.
     Net Replacement openings are an estimate of the number of job openings expected
 because people have permanently left an
     occupation. It estimates the net movement of 1) experienced workers who leave an
 occupation and start working in another
     occupation, stop working altogether, or leave the geographic area minus 2) experienced
 workers who move into such an opening.
     It does not represent the total number of jobs to be filled due to the need to replace
 workers.

 [2] Median Hourly Wage is the estimated 50th percentile of the distribution of wages; 50
 percent of workers in an occupation
       earn wages below, and 50 percent earn wages above the median wage. The wages are
 of the first quarter of 2005.

 calculate an hourly wage.
