Improving Hiring Practices

Jonah Rockoff: Professor of Finance and Economics at the Columbia Business School Jonah Rockoff discusses current problems regarding information in the teacher job market and efforts to improve teacher hiring practices. Classroom observation is one point which although is limited in its power, has been agreed by both researchers and practitioners as an important evaluation. Rockoff mentions how there is increased predictive power by using more predictive indicators of performance but at the same time principals do not seem to be using this criteria which infers that there is room to improve hiring practices.
