8 SURVEY HIGHLIGHTS The appeal of alternative certification. Nearly half (47 percent) of those entering teaching through alternate routes say they would not have become a teacher if an alternate route to certification had not been available. o o The data indicate that the older one gets the less inclined one is to enter teaching without an alternate route. More than half (59 percent) of those surveyed who were in their 50s or older when they entered an alternate route say they would not have become a teacher if an alternate route had not been available. Half (50 percent) of those in their 40s, 46 percent of those in their 30s and 45 percent in their 20s say they would not have become teachers if an alternate route had not been available. Further, in the absence of an alternative certification route: o o o More than half (54 percent) of individuals entering teaching from a professional occupation say they would not have become teachers. More than half (52 percent) of men compared to 45 percent of women say they would not have become a teacher. Fifty-three percent of Hispanics compared to 48 percent of whites and 43 percent of African- Americans in the survey say they would not have become a teacher. Age, gender and race differences. The alternatively certified teacher population has more males, more minorities and more older people than the population of teachers who obtain certification via the traditional route. o Thirty-seven percent of the sample were men and 63 percent were women. Twenty-five percent of the teaching force in the United States is male. o Seventy-two percent of those surveyed were 30 or older; 47 percent were 40 or older and 20 percent were older than 50. o Thirty-two percent were non-white compared to 10 percent of the overall teacher population. Educational background. Nearly eight out of 10 enter an alternative certification program with a bachelor degree or higher in a field other than education. Education as a new career. Nearly half (47 percent) of the people entering teaching through alternate routes were working in a non-education job before they began an alternative teacher certification program; 40 percent were working in a professional occupation outside the field of education. Minority attraction. Nearly one-third (32 percent) of entrants into teaching via alternate routes are nonwhite compared to 11 percent of the current teaching force. Satisfaction with alternative certification. Only 3 percent of those entering teaching through alternate routes say they would not recommend an alternate route to teacher certification to others interested in becoming teachers. Retaining teachers. Nearly two-thirds (62 percent) of the survey respondents entering teaching through alternate routes expect to be teaching K-12 five years from now. Another 24 percent expect to be in some other job in education. States with the highest percentage of alternatively certified teachers report that 87 percent of them are still teaching after five years. Only 5 percent of respondents report they expect to be employed in an occupation outside of education five years from now. Only 2 percent report they expect to be retired completely compared to 22 percent of the overall teaching force. vi PROFILE OF ALTERNATE ROUTE TEACHERS NATIONAL CENTER FOR EDUCATION INFORMATION

9 INTRODUCTION Twenty years ago the alternative certification movement for teachers was in its fledgling stage. The idea that high quality teachers could be recruited from outside established education channels was regarded as avant-garde if not downright radical. Experience in states all over the country has proven that educated individuals from a wide variety of occupations, including the military, can and do make excellent teachers. Teachers entering through alternate routes have become an important part of our education system, imparting their knowledge and experience to a generation of students and providing a vital source of talent and energy. This survey offers the first demographic profile of the men and women who have chosen the alternative route to certification as teachers. It provides us with important information not only about who chooses to become a teacher by taking an alternate route to the traditional campus-based college teacher education program route but also about why they make the choice and what they value in the experience. The importance of this survey becomes evident when we consider that the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act are pressing America s schools for just the sort of teachers that the alternate certification movement is producing not only more teachers but more teachers who are highly qualified in their subjects. The results of this survey can help guide us toward the likely individuals in our society who might be interested in teaching as a first or a second career; we can alter the process to make it more effective and more attractive, and we can gain important insight into what does and doesn t work. A word about terminology. As time marches on and alternate routes to teacher certification proliferate, it is important to note that, in order to teach in public schools, one has to be certified, and the ONLY entity in the United States of America that can certify or license individuals to teach in public schools in this nation is the state in which one is teaching. Each state has its own certification requirements. To date, there is no national certification for entry into teaching. In keeping with states rights regarding certification of teachers, the National Center for Education Information has established that if a state calls a route or avenue or pathway to teacher certification an alternate route, it is an alternate route, regardless of who administers it or who implements it. Also, there has been some confusion about definitions. Since 1983, NCEI has analyzed this topic in great detail and has determined that alternative teacher certification, alternative routes to teacher certification and alternate routes to teacher certification are synonymous. In most states, the alternate routes to teacher certification lead to the issuance of the same type of beginning certificate that individuals who complete a college-based teacher education route receive. The term, alternate route refers to a state s guidelines or provisions for alternative paths to teacher certification other than the traditional college-based teacher education program routes to certification. An alternate route program refers to the actual program as NATIONAL CENTER FOR EDUCATION INFORMATION PROFILE OF ALTERNATE ROUTE TEACHERS 1

10 implemented by a provider in the state. For example, the Houston Independent School District Alternative Certification Program is one of the 67 programs in the state of Texas that is following and implementing the state s established basic guidelines for an alternate route to certification. Whatever they are called, alternate routes to teacher certification in the states and alternate route programs within the states are proliferating at a rapid rate in the United States and are now a major source of new teachers. The movement began in New Jersey, Texas and California in the early 1980s as a way to both ward off projected shortages of teachers and eliminate the alarming increase of emergency certificates. Alternative routes, as this survey demonstrates, also are having a major impact on the profile of who is coming into the teaching profession. In addition, the programs they are going through are changing the way all teachers are entering the profession. NCEI has been surveying the states since 1983 about what they are doing in providing alternatives to the traditional campus-based college teacher education program route for certifying teachers and began cataloguing that information in an annual publication, ALTERNATIVE TEACHER CERTIFICATION: A State-by-State Analysis. Forty-seven states and the District of Columbia are now implementing approximately 538 alternate route programs that produced approximately 35,000 newly certified teachers in The numbers are growing rapidly. Based on data submitted by the states, NCEI estimates that more than 250,000 persons have been licensed through alternative routes to teacher certification programs, with most of the growth occurring in the last decade. Most important, nearly all individuals who complete an alternate route to teacher certification program are teaching the following year. By comparison, only 40 percent of the 200,000 graduates taking the conventional route who receive a bachelor s degree and are identified as qualified to teach are actually teaching one year later, according to the U.S. Department of Education s Baccalaureate and Beyond studies. As more states have instituted legislation for alternative routes to teacher certification, an increasing number of institutions of higher education have initiated non-traditional alternative programs that include on-the-job training for the preparation of post-baccalaureate candidates for teaching. Success breeds success. In the past decade, alternative teacher certification has evolved as a respectable practice and has spawned many new pathways that provide excellent preparation and training for a career in teaching. The primary reason for this development is that alternative routes to teacher certification are one of the few truly market-driven phenomena in American education. The demand-for-teachers issue has gotten considerable attention in the past several years. What has received much less attention is the supply side the dramatic changes in who wants to teach. The most dramatic change in the past few years has been a shift toward people beginning their preparation to teach later in life and later in their careers. Furthermore, many of these new professionals intend to remain in the classroom as these survey results show. 2 PROFILE OF ALTERNATE ROUTE TEACHERS NATIONAL CENTER FOR EDUCATION INFORMATION

11 Most teachers entering the profession through alternate routes are recruited for areas where the demand for teachers is greatest in large cities and rural areas and in subject areas in greatest demand special education, mathematics and science. The alternate route programs are created and designed specifically to meet the needs in those areas, as well as the specific needs of prospective teachers who come from other careers and with considerable life experiences. These programs get prospective teachers into the classroom early, usually as a full-time teacher, earning a salary, while working with experienced teachers. Alternative routes for preparing and licensing teachers are attracting large numbers of highly qualified, talented and enthusiastic individuals to the teaching profession. Applicants to these programs number in the thousands. Most are highly educated, life-experienced adults who want to teach and to improve America s educational system. Many of them think alternative routes not only make the most sense, but also provide the best preparation for the real world of teaching. An ANALYSIS OF ALTERNATE ROUTE PROGRAMS can be found in Appendix C, using data provided to the National Center for Alternative Certification, which was created in 2003 by the National Center for Education Information with a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The results of this 45-item questionnaire survey provide new insights into who they are, why they chose to teach, how they are transitioning into teaching, what they think is important and not important in developing competence to teach, how long they plan to stay in teaching and a host of other issues. This project could not have been accomplished without the competent work of many people. First of all, I want to thank the individuals who assisted in providing the samples of alternate route teachers: Eileen McDaniel from Florida, Ron Kettler from Texas; Vicki Bernstein from New York, Tom McGinnity from the Milwaukee Teacher Education Center, and John Gantz from Troops to Teachers. I am deeply indebted to Steven Griffin at the Florida Center for Interactive Media of Florida State University, as well as Sande Milton and Pam Flood of FSU and Karen Wilde, just retired from the Florida State Department of Education, for their expertise in survey data and analysis programming. I wish to thank Charlene Haar and Larry Meyer for their seemingly endless editing, Jason Hobar and Amanda Scullion for their tireless work in formatting charts and tables and Emily Joseph for making sure every number in the report is accurate. Lastly, a huge thank you to all the alternate route teachers who completed the survey, to the state officials who, year after year, provide us with such detailed and rich information about their alternate routes and to the providers of alternate route programs who have been so generous in sharing data and information about your individual programs.
