Teacher Preparation in Career Pathways: The Future of America's Teacher Pipeline offers a critical and timely discussion of what teacher preparation should look like in the twenty-first century and why. Embry-Jenlink speaks directly of decreasing quality in America's teacher workforce and the dismal recruitment of teachers from historically underrepresented and underserved populations. The voices of deans, faculty, school administrators, and directors of non-profit agencies resound with an emerging workforce solution, Teacher Preparation in Career Pathways.  The authors showcase five diverse teacher pipeline programs that address the staffing demands in high need schools through "grow your own" approaches as they explore policy issues, resource sharing, accountability, and promoting successful postsecondary student transfer across articulated teacher preparation programs. Teacher Preparation in Career Pathways is the first book of its kind to profile an emerging, innovative approach to teacher preparation in the twenty-first century-teacher preparation that is designed around collaborative and sustainable P-16 partnerships among school districts, colleges, and universities to strategically address persistent issues of building teacher quality, capacity, and diversity.
Karen Embry-Jenlink, EdD, is a professor of doctoral studies within the department of secondary education and educational leadership in the James I. Perkins College of Education at Stephen F. Austin State University.

Editorial Reviews

Teacher Preparation in Career Pathways recognizes and inspires educators who courageously innovate to prepare teachers along a career pathway that addresses persistent teacher shortages in geographic areas with chronic hiring needs and ongoing vacancies. Exfoliating threats to teacher supply due to impending retirements and changing P-12 student demographics render this book as a must read for deans, superintendents, university and college professors, teachers, and parents. The authors trumpet a reverberating call for responsive teacher preparation across the United States that resound our urgent charge to recruit, train, and retain a more diverse teacher workforce in critical fields in high-need schools.
