SECTION 1: APPLICANT RECRUITMENT AND SELECTION Applicant Recruitment Our underlying framework in school leader recruitment is anchored largely in Teach For America’s recruitment model; similarly, our thoughts about what it takes to be successful as a leader are based in Teach For America’s Teaching As Leadership curriculum and approach. At the center of this framework is the core belief that effective educators are like effective leaders in any context: they set a big vision and related goals, then develop and utilize a set of knowledge, mindsets, and skills to help them realize both vision and goals. We believe that exceptional teachers, who have demonstrated effective leadership in that role, have the highest potential of all other potential recruits to become excellent school leaders. Therefore, we will focus our recruitment on current teachers.
