Reports and Findings That Show the Global Skills Gap and Requirement
Not long ago, the leadership team of a school district I was working
with asked me: “If you were going to hire a new teacher, what would you
ask in the interview?” They were concerned that hiring teachers with the
right skills now can save a district a lot of money in staff
development later. Moreover, they wanted to hire teachers who would be
open minded about changes to come. The problem is to balance the reality
of today’s pressure for test scores and required teacher evaluation
with the changes that can be anticipated during the next two decades.
