Consultant Role Study: Regional Perceptions and Practices.
Regional Curriculum Project, Atlanta, GA.
An interview schedule was administered to 180 respondents (116 instructional consultants, seven directors of instructional consultants, 51 vocational consultants, and six directors of vocational consultants) to determine the regional point of view of the consultant role in the six-State area of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Survey data are reported in three sections. Sections 1 and 2 distinguish 11 categories of responses from vocational and instructional consultants, including sources of requests, individuals and groups with whom consultants work, frequency of consultant activities, and evaluation of consultant activities. Section 3 reports responses for all respondents to four categories of open-ended interview data: Satisfying experiences, dissatisfying incidents, drawbacks, and dreams and projections. Findings of the study indicate that the two modus operandi of the instructional and vocational consultants are distinct but that both kinds of consultants consider themselves as change agents and find their work satisfying when they are able to effect change. The report is designed to assist individual State departments of education in their efforts to improve their working relationships with local schools. (JK)
