Final Evaluation Report of the Education Professions Development Act Part B, Subpart 2 Program in North Carolina.
Johnson, Sarah M.
The Education Professions Development Act (EDPA) Part B, Subpart 2 authorizes a state grant program to provide local school districts with funds to meet shortages of classroom personnel by recruiting persons from the community, providing them with intensive short-term preservice training, and putting them to work in classrooms. This final report evaluates the EPDA B-2 program operating in North Carolina for the 1971-72 school year. The data, based on surveys of the 150 participating teachers, indicates that the programs were successful in achieving their objectives. A comparison of the EPDA B-2 teachers with their traditionally-trained peers suggests that B-2 teachers perform on the job at least as well as these peers. (The report is extensively documented with tables throughout the text. Appendixes containing supportive material are included.) (MJM)
