Mandated Staff Development in the Fifty States: A Study of State Activity 1983-1989.
Cooley, Van E.; Thompson, Jay C., Jr.
This study is a replication of a 1983-84 study of state activity in the area of staff development. Survey questionnaires were mailed to the Chief Educational Officer in each of the 50 states; responses were received from all states. The study compares changes since the 1984 study and focuses on five basic objectives: (1) Which states through law or accreditation currently mandate staff development or inservice programs for local school districts? (2) Which states are currently planning, or have pending, legislation regarding staff development? (3) What effect do per pupil expenditures have on state-mandated staff development programs? (4) Which states provide funding for staff development or inservice programs? and (5) What types of support are provided by State Departments of Education to local school districts in the area of staff development?
