Auxiliary Personnel in the Minneapolis Public Schools: A Profile.
A survey was conducted to determine the background characteristics of the auxiliary school personnel employed by the Minneapolis public school system. Eighty percent of all such employees on a particular month's payroll responded via questionnaire. Analysis of the data indicated that the typical aide was white, married, female, over 36 years old, and was not the major wage earner in the household. Differences between aides in Title I schools (schools supported by Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act) also occurred: Title I aides had more experience and worked longer hours per week than did non-Title I aides, and a greater percentage of aides in Title I schools spent more time in the classroom than did aides in non-Title I schools (who spent more time on routine clerical duties). (Two appendixes are included: a sample questionnaire and charts of the response data.) (JB)
