Staff Report to the Governor's Educational Study Committee and Report to the Governor by the Governor's Education Study Committee.
Louisiana Governor's Education Study Committee, Baton Rouge.
The Governor's Education Study Committee in Louisiana has compiled this extensive report covering teacher salaries, financing public education, teacher certification, pupil-teacher ratios, and the professional literature on merit pay, differentiated staffing, and accountability. Using data from a statewide survey of teachers and administrators and comparative data between Louisiana and other states, final recommendations were adopted: (1) that the legislature enact a new state teacher salary schedule granting increases; (2) that teahcer certification be based on professional development and financial inducement; (3) that other school employees be granted salary increases; (4) that payment be made for additional inservice days; (5) that state payment for nondegree teachers be eliminated; (6) that a uniform policy for granting credit for teaching experience be adopted; (7) that additional pay for post-master's degree work be only for planned programs; and, (8) that consideration be given for a statewide insurance plan for teachers. Extensive tables and discussion provide supporting data and details of the recommendations. (DW)
