ELEMENTS OF GRADUATE ORGANIZATION IN TEN UNIVERSITIES.
MCKENZIE, WILLIAM R.
THE GRADUATE SCHOOLS OF EDUCATION OF 10 (MOSTLY MIDWESTERN STATE) UNIVERSITIES WERE EXAMINED TO DETERMINE HOW THEY RELATE TO THE GRADUATE OFFICE, THE TYPES OF DEGREES GRANTED, AND THE QUALITY OF THEIR PROGRAMS. EACH OF THE 10 GRADUATE DEANS, AS WELL AS OTHER INVOLVED PERSONS, WERE INTERVIEWED, AND PRINTED MATERIAL, INCLUDING THE GRADUATE BULLETINS, WERE READ. FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS WERE--(1) NONE OF THE GRADUATE OFFICES DEVOTED AN AMOUNT OF TIME TO THE SCHOOL OF EDUCATION COMMENSURATE WITH THE NUMBER OF ITS STUDENTS AND SHOULD BEGIN TO DO SO, (2) MOST GRADUATE STUDENTS IN EDUCATION WERE NOT MAKING USE OF THE FULL RESOURCES OF THE UNIVERSITY FOR THEIR PROGRAMS AND SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED TO DO SO, (3) THE VARIETY AND NUMBER OF GRADUATE DEGREES AWARDED WERE TOO CONFUSING, SERVE LITTLE PURPOSE, AND SHOULD BE AMENDED TO ONE CONSISTENT PATTERN, AND (4) GRADUATE DEGREES IN EDUCATION DO NOT HAVE THE STATUS OF DEGREES IN OTHER FIELDS AND THE PH.D. SHOULD BE THE ONLY TERMINAL DEGREE IN EDUCATION. (AW)
