Duty-Free Lunch Periods for Elementary-School Teachers.
Educational Research Service Circular, n4 1968
This circular reports the results of a national survey designed to determine the extent to which duty-free lunch periods are provided for elementary teachers in all of the 503 school systems enrolling more than 12,000 students. The noon-hour procedures used by the 437 responding school systems are reported by enrollment stratum and by geographical region. For each of the 207 systems having daily duty-free lunch periods, the following information is given: (1) Length of lunch period for students and teachers, (2) method of student supervision during teacher's free time, and (3) rate of pay for supervision. Respondents indicated various arrangements for supervision, including the use of nonprofessional personnel, parent volunteers, administrative personnel, teachers with alternate lunch periods, and student monitors.
