Twelve-Year Follow-Up Study: Role and Status of Curriculum Workers in Indiana.
Walker, William L.; Hamm, Russell L.
This study investigated the role and status of curriculum workers in Indiana. The first part of this document presents the findings of other studies concerning curriculum workers and indicates the need for more research. The second part details the gathering of information on curriculum workers. In the fall of 1980, a questionnaire, designed to elicit information about curriculum specialists, was sent to all public school superintendents within Indiana. The questionnaire was a followup instrument to a 1968 study on the subject. The first part of the survey form secured data about the school (enrollment size, sociological structure, and organizational structure). The second part provided data on the kind and number of curriculum workers in the schools. Elementary and secondary curriculum workers were categorized into four major groups: general supervisor, subject matter supervisor, special services supervisor, and instructional media supervisor. Data resulting from the survey are presented in tabular form. The two final parts of this report present comparative descriptions based on data obtained in 1968 and 1980 of the role, status, and functions of general supervisors of curriculum and subject matter supervisors.
