Induction is a smart investment in
creating more capable and effective teachers who are satisfied and
will stay in the profession. We can't afford to lose highly qualified
teachers. We know the sink-or-swim approach does not work. The Michigan
Elementary and Middle School Principals Association (MEMSPA) supports
the use of the practical, research-based induction and mentoring
tools and resources contained on the ASSIST site as a huge step toward
developing highly qualified teachers and collegiality in the profession.
