School System Personnel: Administrative Practices and Problems. Regional Invitational Annual Conference for School Administrators (13th, Banff, Alberta, April 25-27, 1971).
Friesen, D., Ed.; Bumbarger, C. S., Ed.
This report contains the proceedings of the conference, which focused on current thinking in personnel practices and some related problems. Four authors discuss the subject from different perspectives. Fred Enns outlines the state of affairs in personnel administration, identifies the primary functions of supervision, and provides data to indicate how changing conditions in schools and society affect these functions. E.W. Ratsoy approaches the theme of teacher professionalism with the suggestion that educators have been too pessimistic in their views of professionalization, but adds that greater teacher participation in decisionmaking and more opportunities for individuality in teaching are promising developments in the move toward educational professionalism. Peter J. Atherton deals with personnel costs and offers two alternatives to current practices: a new salary grid and a new form of staff reorganization. D. A. MacKay explores personnel evaluation in the light of new educational developments and proposes an evaluation model based on recently developed concepts. A related document is ED 044 793. (Author/MLF)
