Georgia's New-Teacher Warranty Education School Principles Offered


Salzer, James, The Florida Times Union


The Board of Regents agreed yesterday to give Georgia school

districts a first-of-its-kind warranty on new teachers produced

Other principles include aggressive recruitment of top-caliber

students to become teachers, and an emphasis on ending

out-of-field teaching in Georgia.

principles and the action plans that will follow -- is that new

teachers should be able to bring about higher levels of student

learning in the classrooms because they will be better

prepared."

Regents last fall began studying how to improve the

recruitment, training and retention of teachers.

teacher within the first two years after graduation if a school

regents officials said.

Chancellor Stephen Portch said he expects the number of

teachers "taken back" by the system will be small.

Most "new" teachers in Georgia schools each year are entering

from other states or returning to the classroom after taking

time off.

Some regents have speculated administrators will be slow to
