Teach Louisiana Consortium: A Fifth Year Program Evaluation

Michelle Haj-Broussard, Angelle Stringer

Abstract


This article describes a fifth year program evaluation of a private provider program for teacher certification in Louisiana. The study sought to evaluate the success of the Teach Louisiana Consortium program in terms of teacher placement, teacher retention, administrative satisfaction, teacher attitudes, and teacher pedagogical knowledge. Initial teacher provided data, state provided data, teacher survey data, and administrator survey data were used in the study. Overall, it was found that the program was positively perceived by both teachers and administrators and it was successful in terms of teacher retention. Areas that need to be addressed as the program develops include diversity, assessment, classroom management, and attrition of teachers from high-need areas.
