Daniel Goldhaber and Roddy Theobald will explore the role that teacher training programs have on the effectiveness of teachers after they enter the profession. They will collect data from most of the enrollees in teacher training programs in the state of Washington in order to identify patterns among theseprograms, such as specific coursework or the intensity of student teaching, that contribute to later success in the profession. The project’s findings will appear in a report and a series of papers.
