Retrospective Study of Employee Mobility in Head Start Programs. Draft of Final Report.
Booz Allen and Hamilton, Inc., Washington, DC.
This report presents the findings from a survey to determine the extent, causes, and import of Head Start employee mobility. The findings are based on data from 56 responding programs out of a sample of 70 selected from a population of 863 full-year Head Start programs listed in a 1971 Office of Economic Opportunities inventory. The study in its recommendations and findings tried to answer three broad questions: How much movement is there in terms of turnover and promotions?; What causal factors can be linked with the mobility patterns?; What amount of impact does turnover have upon Head Start Programs? The study was administered through the use of various questionnaires (Current Employee and Former Employee Questionnaires, Grantee Agency Project Data Questionnaire, and a Delegate Agency Project Data Questionnaire) and subsequent followup interviews. One-fourth of the document deals with the studies, findings, and recommendations, while one-half is devoted to four appendixes on glossary terms, questionnaires and study guides used, methodology used, a review of the literature concerning employee turnover, and detailed mobility rates for each Head Start organization.
