Personnel Administration in State Education Agencies in the Years Ahead: A Guide for the Self-Evaluation and Improvement of Personnel Administration in the State Education Agency. Report on the Improvement of Personnel Administration in State Education Agencies Project.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
A study of personnel administration in State education agencies leads to the conclusion that the agencies' personnel programs desperately need to be strengthened. The findings and recommendations are based on (1) a comprehensive review of existing personnel practices in State education agencies; (2) a review of personnel management practices in business, industry, and government; and (3) a review of recent literature dealing with modern concepts of personnel administration. The major findings are that most State education agency personnel programs are severely hampered by (1) lack of professional personnel leadership, (2) the control of their appropriated funds being held by outside agencies, (3) low salaries paid their professional staff, (4) lack of attention given to motivating employees, and (5) ineffective communications in the agency. Extensive guidelines suggest ways for the agencies to improve their personnel administration, and a scorecard for each guideline can be used by the agency to evaluate its existing personnel program. Selected references and a glossary of terms are appended. (TT)
