    The American Association for Employment in Education, along with 24 other organizations, has issued a joint statement affirming their strong support of high standards in education and calling for united efforts to recruit quality and diverse candidates into the teaching profession.

    Classroom learning is most effectively supported by teachers who have pursued high-quality preparation programs, according to research. Motivating the most promising students to pursue careers in education and providing rigorous teacher preparation is key to having the most effective teachers in our classrooms. Quality education preparation programs work to develop candidates’ teaching abilities and ready them for the realities of the classroom, further raising their chances of success.

    The full statement can be found on our Partnerships page.

    AAEE, along with 24 other education-related entities, understands that educators have long been struggling under the weight of a negative narrative about the teaching profession as well as the increased scrutiny and demands placed on them. Additionally, enrollment in teacher education programs has declined 30% nationally since 2008, and the number of high-achieving undergraduate students considering a career in education is at its lowest level in decades.

    “A key indicator of the public’s lack of respect for the teaching profession can be seen in the declining numbers of people entering the profession,” stated Kappa Delta Pi Executive Director Faye Snodgress. “As an organization that is committed to ensuring that all children have a highly effective teacher, KDP invited other education organizations to be a part of an effort to change the narrative and recognize the teaching profession for the noble profession that it is.”

    Through the collaboration and partnering of our organizations, we are positioning ourselves to promote education as an attractive career, actively participate in teacher preparation, and continually support the career-long professional growth of teachers. We deeply value the collaboration and support of our colleagues in helping to amplify our voice.

    “The American Association for Employment in Education is proud to collaborate with other national education-related organizations to encourage students to pursue the teaching profession,” stated Deborah Snyder, Executive Director of AAEE. “As a professional association that includes school system administrators, university career services professionals and College of Education faculty, high-quality preparation and recruitment of educators is our primary goal.”

    AAEE Members, you are invited to submit an article for consideration for the next edition of the Job Search Handbook for Educators. The deadline for submitting the article is February 13, 2017.

    We seek articles between 250 and 1,000 words. Short articles are welcome! Here are some tips:

    • Write specifically for future teachers. The Job Search Handbook is widely distributed to student teachers who will soon be applying for their first full-time teaching jobs. Our goal is to provide them with information to make them as confident as possible.
    • Make the article conversational. We appreciate and want data-supported articles, but provide your data in a conversational format. Consider including your information as a “To Do List,” a “Top Ten” or “Top Five,” a series of FAQ’s, or a quiz. Think about how you would present this information to student teachers if you were addressing them in person.
    • Use current data and resources – please do not cite resources that are more than three years old. 

    You are welcome to submit an article that covers any aspect of the teacher job search.

     If we accept your article, you, as the author:

    • Bear full responsibility for the content; opinions expressed are not necessarily representative of AAEE; 
    • Confirm that the article has not been published or submitted elsewhere; 
    • Grant AAEE the right to use this article in 2018 Job Search Handbook and other AAEE publications and/or media; 
    • Understand the editorial committee reserves the right to edit the article to fit theHandbook’s style and continuity.

    Please email your proposed article (as a Word document) and a copy of the AAEE author’s agreement to: Becky Faber, 2018 Editorial Committee, at rfaber1@unl.edu by February 13, 2017
