Date Issued:
2009
Summary:
Recruitment, selection, employment, and retention of teachers in the juvenile justice education system are significant problems in Florida and elsewhere. Educators employed in juvenile justice education programs enter the field without benefit of professional teacher preparation to work in the environment. College and University teacher preparation programs are designed to prepare prospective teachers for employment in a K-12 public school, private, or charter school, classroom. New employee preservice orientation is the primary method of “preparing” newly hired juvenile justice teachers to work within the setting and assume classroom instructional responsibility. Ongoing inservice training is intended to enhance skills and competencies. Voluntary juvenile justice teacher survey respondents suggests that current college and university teacher preparation programs, new employee pre-service orientation, and ongoing inservice training programs need to be redesigned as part of the effort to retain teachers in the juvenile justice system.
