  • The Private School Teacher Skills Gap

    The Private School Teacher Skills Gap report set out to answer a simple question: Do private school educators need a different set of skills than public school educators need to be successful? To answer that question, author Mike McShane, in partnership with Hanover Research, surveyed private school teachers and leaders across three states, including a substantial subset who had taught or led in both public and private schools. Based on the findings, he also identified opportunities to improve teacher preparation programs.
