IN-SERVICE EDUCATION IN SMALL SCHOOLS.
O'HANLON, JAMES
A SURVEY OF THE IN-SERVICE EDUCATION PRACTICES IN 155 SMALL (10 TO 40 TEACHERS) SECONDARY SCHOOLS WAS CONDUCTED IN NEBRASKA DURING THE 1966-67 SCHOOL YEAR. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE SENT TO ALL THE ADMINISTRATORS AND TO A RANDOM SAMPLE (6 PERCENT) OF THE TEACHER POPULATION OF THE SCHOOLS. THESE INSTRUMENTS ASKED FOR DESCRIPTIONS AND EVALUATIONS OF PRESENT PROGRAMS AND OPINIONS CONCERNING THE KINDS OF IN-SERVICE EDUCATION EXPERIENCES NEEDED. TABLES ARE PRESENTED SHOWING (1) THE PERCENTAGE OF TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS CONDUCTING IN-SERVICE EDUCATION ACTIVITIES, (2) THE TYPES OF IN-SERVICE ACTIVITIES, (3) EVALUATION RESULTS OF IN-SERVICE PROGRAMS, AND (4) THE AREAS OF INSTRUCTION WHERE TEACHERS NEED ASSISTANCE AND WHERE THEY HAVE RECEIVED ASSISTANCE. THE WRITER CONCLUDES THAT MORE IN-SERVICE ACTIVITIES ARE NEEDED WHICH (1) INVOLVE TEACHERS IN THE LEADERSHIP OF ACTIVITIES, (2) ARE RELATED TO TEACHERS' IMMEDIATE DAY-TO-DAY INSTRUCTIONAL CONCERN, (3) ARE EVALUATED IN TERMS OF THEIR EFFECTIVENESS, AND (4) INVOLVE TEACHERS IN THE PLANNING OF THE ACTIVITIES.
