Are districts recruiting teachers?
There are no current plans to collect information about district job applicants.  However, there is some evidence districts prefer certain characteristics, such as where the applicant student taught, which program they completed, and which endorsements (subjects) are on their teaching credential.  We also have evidence of differences in district hiring practices, in particular, practices that lead to early and late hiring.
