SURVEY OF PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER AIDES, FALL 1965.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
TO DETERMINE THE NUMBER, CHARACTERISTICS, AND ACTIVITIES PERFORMED BY NONCERTIFIED PERSONNEL SERVING AS TEACHER AIDES IN NEW YORK SCHOOLS (EXCLUDING NEW YORK CITY), QUESTIONNAIRE RESPONSES FROM 629 OF THE 740 CHIEF SCHOOL OFFICERS IN THE STATE (85 PERCENT) WERE TALLIED. MORE THAN TWO-THIRDS REPORTED THE USE OF TEACHER AIDES. FROM AN 85 PERCENT RESPONSE TO A SECOND QUESTIONNAIRE SENT DIRECTLY TO THE 3,134 AIDES IDENTIFIED BY CHIEF SCHOOL OFFICERS, 98 PERCENT WERE WOMEN (MEDIAN AGE 42), EMPLOYED IN THE DISTRICT AS AIDES FOR A MEDIAN OF 3.5 YEARS, 89 PERCENT WORKED LESS THAN A 7-HOUR DAY. IN 91 PERCENT OF THE DISTRICTS, AIDES WERE SELECTED BY ADMINISTRATORS ALONE. THEIR ACTIVITIES INCLUDED NONINSTRUCTIONAL SUPERVISION, CLERICAL DUTIES, SUCH TECHNICAL HELP AS DRILLING AND STORY TELLING AND HOUSEKEEPING. A FEW DISTRICTS EMPLOYED LAY READERS, INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS AIDES, AND LABORATORY AIDES. AN OBVIOUS RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN EDUCATIONAL LEVEL AND TYPE OF JOB WAS SHOWN. NINETY-THREE PERCENT OF THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS REPORTED FAVORABLE REACTIONS TO THE USE OF TEACHER AIDES. (CA)
