While demographics of US classrooms have increasingly change over the last decade, the practice of successfully recruiting and hiring bilingual teachers has not changed. There are several obstacles including requiring certifications and bilingual extensions in advance of hire.

Similar challenges have negatively impacted the taxi industry limiting market entry and forcing it to change from an old system characterized by inefficiency, high costs to consumers, and increased regulatory burdens for drivers. Recent business innovations and new technology introduced by ride hailing companies like Uber, has prompted regulators across the US to rethink transportation services to be more responsive and consumer focused.

The following pages list 5 practices employed by Uber, the leading ride hailing service, that can be employed to help improve Bilingual Teacher Recruitment and Hiring Practices in US schools systems.

  11. 11. FOOD FOR THOUGHT Lack of innovation in Bilingual Teacher Recruitment and Hiring Practices has negatively impacted classrooms leaving students, parents, and educators. Research conducted by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University “Rethinking Taxi Regulations: The Case for Fundamental Reform” shows that innovations implemented by Uber have significantly improved service to consumers and drivers. It has also increased supply and quality of drivers without lowering overall safety and security standards for transportation. It is our belief that schools and districts can learn from these innovations and explore how they can be applied to the teacher recruitment and hiring process to better serve our students, parents, and schools across the US. © BTEP 2014-2017
