NEW CAREERS FOR NON-PROFESSIONALS IN EDUCATION. FINAL REPORT.
HARTLEY, JAMES R.
THIS REPORT DESCRIBES AN EFFORT TO DEVELOP A MODEL FOR TEACHING AND ADMINISTRATION IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, PARTICULARLY THOSE HAVING LARGE NUMBERS OF SOCIALLY, ECONOMICALLY AND EDUCATIONALLY DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN. THRITY-TWO SUBPROFESSIONAL TEACHING ASSISTANTS, MOSTLY POOR AND FROM MINORITY GROUPS, WERE EMPLOYED AND TRAINED TO HELP CHILDREN LEARN. COMMUNITY ACCEPTANCE WAS SUBSTANTIAL. APPROACHES TO ALLEVIATE CURRENT SOCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS ARE DISCUSSED IN RELATION TO (1) INCREASING UNEMPLOYMENT AMONG DISADVANTAGED PEOPLE, CAUSED BY LACK OF FORMAL EDUCATION AND TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES, (2) THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE MORE TRADITIONAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL FOR EDUCATING DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN, (3) THE SHORTAGE OF PROFESSIONAL ELEMENTARY TEACHERS, (4) OVERCROWDED CLASSROOM CONDITIONS, (5) COMMUNICATION DIFFICULTIES BETWEEN ADULTS AND DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN AND (6) TECHNIQUES FOR OBSERVATION AND EVALUATION OF TEACHING AND LEARNING.
