AFT QuEST Report on Differentiated Staffing.
Bhaerman, Robert D., Comp.
This "Study Outline on Differentiated Staffing" is a compilation of writings on the subject designed to highlight the major assumptions and elements. The outline items are reported directly as they appear in the literature, many ideas keyed to the 59-item bibliography which is included. The author's comments and suggestions are inserted in italics throughout. Major topics in the outline are (1) Major objectives of differentiated staffing (11 are listed); (2) Some of education's troublesome problems and how differentiated staffing relates to them (20 are noted); (3) Descriptions drawn from various differentiated staffing models (The Temple City, California, Model is presented in greatest detail); (4) Strengths (a list of 14); (5) Weaknesses and other significant questions (20 items); (6) Primary issues where the concept of differentiated staffing directly relates to areas of collective bargaining (8 are listed); (7) The position and views of the American Federation of Teachers; and (8) The author's personal views. Another section of "Favorite Quotes" is included for further examination, and a more extensive quotation from the "American Teacher" (May 1969) discusses the question (1) Where is differentiated staffing being implemented? (2) How does it differ from traditional staffing patterns? (3) Is it an educational fad? What are some safeguards against it becoming such? (JS)
