Differentiated Staffing in Foreign Languages.
Dragonas, Phyllis J.
This paper argues that the present structure of foreign language education is inefficient and needs to be restructured in the direction of differentiated staffing. A model of such an organizational framework is presented, along guidelines which include: involvement of teachers in decision-making; a hierarchy based on professional, preservice, and paraprofessional levels; career incentives; and accomodation of student and teacher needs and abilities. Implications of this study include: the need for restructured teacher-training programs; new certification measures; the need for further research and experimentation in differentiated staffing for foreign language instruction.
