Teacher Aides: A Status Report.
This bulletin, designed to be of assistance to those interested in employing and utilizing teacher aides, presents (1) a general account of current thinking on the rationale, use, and effects of teacher aides in public school programs and (2) the results of a descriptive research study designed to determine the status of the teacher aide in both elementary and secondary grades in Indiana State University Educational Development Council (ISUEDC) school corporations. Findings from questionnaire data (returned by 63 of the 83 member schools) are presented under four headings: the various functions which teacher aides are performing; the various methods used to finance teacher aide programs; characteristics and qualifications of the aides presently employed; and the need for development of training programs for aides. Summary, conclusions, and speculations for further consideration are presented. Appended is a 43-item annotated bibliography prepared by the National Commission on Teacher Education and Professional Standards (NCTEPS) which includes references for information on the jobs aides do, how they are trained and paid, and federal assistance for program funding.
