While it is clear that better teachers get better results with students, school leaders often put themselves at a disadvantage by not hiring the best teachers available.


Every superintendent, principal, and PTA president should read Hire Better Teachers Now. A critical step in improving our school systems is ensuring that we are hiring great teachers who fit the needs of the school. Hire Better Teachers Now identifies common mistakes schools make when reviewing job candidates. It clearly explains how to apply best practices to create a valid hiring process.
— Stuart D. Sidle, associate provost and professor, industrial-organizational psychology, University of New Haven

A few years ago we changed our approach to hiring using the techniques in this book. It worked! Armed with a consistent set of questions and activities informed by the proven traits of our most effective teachers, our principals have meaningfully improved the quality of the teachers we hire.
— Yasmin Bhatia, CEO, Uplift Education

Hire Better Teachers Now presents a wealth of resources that enable administrators to hire the best teachers to maximize instruction and growth of your students. — Adam D. Drummond, NAESP

The accessibility of the content, as well as the level of detail provided, makes this book particularly useful to those who are not as familiar with the hiring process in education. For those who have already developed expertise in this area, this book could be used to reevaluate their current hiring process in order to maximize efficiency and effectiveness. Overall, Hire Better Teachers Now: Using the Science of Selection to Find the Best Teachers for Your School represents a valuable resource for schools and districts who wish to develop or improve teacher hiring systems. — Amy M.
