Recruiting New Teachers Inc. (RNT) has revised and updated its National Teacher Recruitment Clearinghouse, which first launched in 2000 and now helps thousands of teachers and school systems locate each other. The newly revised site’s content focuses on three primary audiences: individuals interested in pursuing a career in teaching, certified teachers looking for jobs, and education leaders and administrators who are struggling to find and retain highly qualified instructors. “This revamped site helps to solve teacher recruitment and retention issues across local, regional, and state lines,” said Mildred Hudson, RNT’s chief executive officer. “Districts and states can increase traffic to their own web sites and gain access to a national pool of teachers, while qualified teachers looking for jobs can use the clearinghouse to find places to post their resumes.” For districts, the site offers a way to cast a wider net for new recruits and expand their outreach nationwide, while also providing information about innovative ways to improve recruitment and retention efforts to meet the tough new Improving Teacher Quality requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act.
