Working Without a Net: How New Teachers from Three Prominent Alternate Route Programs Describe Their First Year on the Job

Abstract

"Working Without a Net" focuses on new teachers in high-needs schools, comparing the perspectives of those from traditional teacher education versus those from three alternate-route programs: Teach for America, Troops to Teachers and The New Teacher Project. According to the survey, the alternate route teachers are especially motivated by the desire to help disadvantaged children but at the same time more disheartened by the conditions they find in their classrooms than traditionally-trained teachers."
