I've been looking through job postings and just realized that there may be a cost to teacher induction. Pretty ashamed I didn't know that already. My research has turned out to be more than somewhat flawed. I have assumed way too much. I've seen anywhere between $2,250 from SIATech to $7,000 from UCSD. I can't tell much about the program offered by my local county DOE. I can't even tell if they are still offering one - lots of broken links. Anyway, I thought the induction program was going to be mentoring and some extra supervision for the first year or two, and part of employment. Apparently not necessarily, and maybe not at all. Anybody willing to fill me in on this? Google is not a reliable friend here.
