Open Access Graduate Research Paper
With fewer able young people entering the teaching field and the attrition of qualified people (minorities in particular) from the profession, the need for effective teacher selection is acute (Jenkins, 1984). Teacher selection is one of the most important managerial decisions made by school administrators today (Bredeson, 1983). Although it is true that declining enrollments have made staff cuts necessary, administrators do need to find replacements every year. Kopetskie (1983) stated that administrators cannot afford to repeat the mistakes made during the teacher shortages of the 1960s, where administrators were forced to accept any "warm body." Furthermore, a shortage of teachers has been forecast for the mid-eighties and beyond (Hogue, 1986).
