Functions of Educational Specialists in the Schools, A Preliminary Analysis.
Utter, Robert A.
IAR-Research Bulletin, v9 n1 p4-7 Nov 68
This survey of elementary and secondary schools gathered information regarding the function of educational specialists. Four functions are analysed: remedial reading, guidance, psychological services, and library assistance. No real pattern evolved as to deployment of any one function at either school level. To examine the people with whom specialists spend their time, five categories of recipients were established: desk work, students, classroom teachers, other specialists, and with others. It was found that the function would relate to a recipient pattern (i.e., specialists in remedial reading work mostly with students and little if any with the other recipient categories). Specialists in guidance, however, distribute their time among all recipient categories. A related document is EA 002 629. (LN)
