A Cost-Effectiveness Study of Employing Nonprofessional Teaching Aides in the Public Schools.
Conant, Eaton H.
This study on the use of nonprofessionals, or teacher aides, in elementary schools reveals some significant findings on (1) division of workload in the classrooms, (2) labor costs, and (3) pupil achievement gains, specifically among disadvantaged children, when a program employing nonprofessional personnel complements the conventional teaching arrangement. The appendix includes a copy of Oregon Rules and Guidelines for Teacher-Aide Training, Function, and Assignment. (Author)
