Improvement of Instruction in Junior College Through Utilization of Auxiliary Personnel.
Bock, Joleen
Federal funding has made available to the schools much material and equipment, but has not provided the additional manpower to make use of it. (An exception is the Vocational Education Act, which provides some personnel funding.) The need for auxiliary technical and teaching personnel is also evident in the teacher's burden of routine work. Depending on background and ability, the aide could take over housekeeping, clerical, data processing, and mechanical chores, operate audiovisual equipment and produce its materials, and even have some interaction with students, as in testing and interviewing. It appears that the use of auxiliary personnel could improve both instruction and research in the junior college. The benefits cannot be accurately predicted--the aides must be appropriately trained and their use evaluated. Their employment would be worth considering as an innovation in itself, and would give the teacher time to be innovative in other areas, to redesign curricula, and generally to pursue academic excellence.
