Professional Staff Development in State Education Agencies. A Monograph.
Rodman, Lond D.; Gregg, Russell T.
This monograph provides State education agencies and the general education community with some basic information pertaining to needs, present practices, and possible new approaches related to training and development for professional personnel in these agencies. The monograph is designed to provide the reader with an appreciation of the importance of training and development programs for professional personnel, some of the basic concepts needed for an understanding of the nature of such programs, and some approaches for developing, conducting, and evaluating programs. Main chapters describe the educational setting, outline the training and development needs of State education agencies, disclose the need for the establishment of training and development models for State education agencies, explain the organization needed for training and development, and argue the benefits of evaluation of such programs. One chapter is devoted to a summary of five empirically tested training and development models created by California, Florida, Georgia, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Also reported are the results of a 50-State survey concerning the perceived needs and present practices regarding training development programs in all 50 State education agencies. The text is amply supported by tables and charts, and an 86-item bibliography is provided. (Author/DN)
