Fees for Home Economics Leader Training and Teaching of Special Groups; County Home Economics Divisions, New York Cooperative Extension. Special Report, Number 16.
Alexander, Frank D.; Engelbrecht, Walda M.
A study was made to determine the fee practices of New York State county home economics divisions with regard to leader training and teaching of special interest groups. Completed questionnaires were received from 52 home economics divisions. Of this number, 23 divisions had a fee policy and 24 others lacking such a policy gave eight classes of reasons for not having one. Data were obtained on sources of fees, collection, duration of fee policies, length of regular training classes, class atendance, special interest classes, agents' evaluations(largely favorable) of the effects of fee policies, and members' complaints (apparently very few) about fees for special interest classes. It was concluded that the development of fee policies should be considered at regional and state meetings, as well as by divisional and other home economics extension leaders.
