North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
This publication provides the basic statistics needed to illustrate the impact of North Carolina's Basic Education Program (BEP), an educational reform effort begun in 1985. Over 85% of the positions in the BEP are directly related to teaching and student-related activities. The new BEP programs result in smaller class sizes in kindergartens and more resources for the state's educationally disadvantaged children. Funding formulas for BEP personnel are summarized in table form for 1984-85, 1994-95, and the projected full implementation. Pie charts indicate the allocation of the total fiscal year (FY) 1994-95 funding of $284 million. While 27.2% is allocated to teachers, 59.9% goes to other instructional support. At full implementation, the BEP will support 11,558 teachers; 1,902 teacher assistants; 4,020 instructional assistants, laboratory instructors, and media and clerical assistants; and 3,790 instructional support personnel. Data are provided in table form for each of the state's 119 counties and city districts, with the numbers of teachers broken down by instructional division. (Contains 1 funding formula table, 3 pie charts of allocations, 1 state summary table, 2 figures, and 119 county and city district data tables.) (SLD)
