A Differentiated Staff: Putting Teaching Talent to Work.
Allen, Dwight W.
To make effective use of teaching talent for a differentiated teaching staff, a four-level structure based on levels of responsibility offers many advantages. Teachers at the top two levels would be hired under 12-month contracts, teachers at the bottom two levels under 10-month contracts. Essential to such a plan would be a maximum salary at the top teaching level ($18,000 a year is suggested) that is at least double that at the lowest ($7,500 is suggested), direct teaching responsibility for teachers at all levels, and innovation and reorganization of basic school structure. Each school, however, will have to work out the particulars of differentiated staffing to meet local needs and conditions. (SG)
