STUDY OF TEACHER LOAD PRACTICES IN CALIFORNIA PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES.
El Camino Coll., Torrance, CA.
RESULTS OF A 93-PERCENT RESPONSE TO QUESTIONNAIRES MAILED TO 68 COLLEGE PRESIDENTS ARE TABULATED AND COMPARED WITH COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS RECEIVED FROM THE EL CAMINO FACULTY. LITTLE STATEWIDE UNIFORMITY IN PRACTICES IS REPORTED, EXCEPT FOR A 71-PERCENT AGREEMENT ON THE USE OF 15 LECTURE HOURS AS A BASIC LOAD. COLLEGE SIZE AND AGE ARE NOT RELATED TO ANY SPECIFIC LOAD PATTERN. EVIDENCE OF OVERLOAD POLICY AND OVERLOAD PAY IS PRESENT. WHILE 200 COLLEGES REQUIRED FACULTY TO REMAIN ON CAMPUS A MINIMUM OF 30 HOURS WEEKLY, 21 MADE NO SUCH REQUIREMENT. THE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDS ADOPTION OF A 15-HOUR TEACHING LOAD OR ITS EQUIVALENT AT EL CAMINO COLLEGE AND SUGGESTS FURTHER STUDY IN THE AREAS OF LECTURE-LABORATORY-ACTIVITY EQUIVALENTS, RECLASSIFICATION OF COURSES, EXTRA COMPENSATION AND RELEASED TIME, READER AND CLERICAL ASSISTANCE, AND THE RELEVANCE OF CLASS SIZE TO THE QUALITY OF INSTRUCTION.
