Auxiliary Personnel in the Elementary School.
The National Elementary Principal, v46 n6 p4-55 May 1967
The first article in this collection of 12 is reprinted from "Auxiliary School Personnel," a booklet published by the National Commission on Teacher Education and Professional Standards. A series on "S.721: Teacher Aide Program Support Act of 1967" includes a copy of the bill, remarks made by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson when he introduced it, and a summary of public reaction to it. "High School Training for New Careers in Human Services" reports a District of Columbia cooperative demonstration program to educate inner-city ghetto students for employment and careers, and "Teenage Teacher-Aide Project" describes a program to prepare Appalachia high schoolers to work as auxiliary school personnel. "Cultivating a New Crop of Human Resources with ESEA Title III" describes a variety of PACE programs for paraprofessionals. "New Branches Grow on the Educational Family Tree" discusses the new responsibilities that will evolve for principals when volunteers or paraprofessionals enter the school system. "School Volunteers: A New Challenge" presents suggestions for establishing volunteer programs and for helping teachers use volunteers. "Teacher Aides: A Survey" synthesizes a 1966 NEA Educational Research Service study. Several articles by school principals describe experience with auxiliaries: "Substitute Training at Belmont"; "Volunteers in the School Health Program"; "Volunteers in the Public School: Bonus or Burden?"; and "An Elementary Principal Views the Feminine Mystique." A 45-item list of references on teacher aides is included. (JS)
