Reading Specialists 1974-1979 Graduates of Kean College: A Follow-Up Study.
A study was conducted to determine how many of the 350 reading specialists who have graduated from Kean College in New Jersey since 1974 are making actual use of their Reading Specialist Certificate. By examining the current professional status of these people and seeking their opinions, some idea of the adequacy or inadequacy of this institution's preparation procedures was sought. Follow-up studies of students of remedial reading programs and follow-up studies of graduate teachers' programs were reviewed. Questionnaires were mailed to 350 reading specialists and data were elicited from 105 (43%) of these people. Interviews were then conducted with five persons. Results showed that 81% of the respondents were presently making use of the Reading Specialist Certificate, primarily in one of three positions--classroom teacher, reading specialist, and remedial reading teacher and that 86% were enjoying their present job.
