Administrative Practices of Colleges of Education.
Doak, J. Linward; And Others
Institutions with graduate programs accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education were surveyed for information on administrative practices. Responses were received from 163 schools: 136 public and 27 private. Responses were found to be similar from the two groups, and are reported together. In some ways the institutions studied were similar: 92 percent have a faculty leave policy, 96 percent have a mandatory retirement age, 82 percent have a formal followup program of graduates, and 95 percent of those with a followup program use a questionnaire. On the other hand these institutions vary widely in administrative practices. The type of leave policy varied; there was no consensus as to a retirement age, years required for promotion, teaching load, requirement to publish, or evaluation of faculty. Further research considering institution size, specialties, and other factors is recommended. Extensive data charts on responses to specific questionnaire items, giving breakdowns for public and private sectors, are appended. (Author/MSE)
