New Roles for Educators: A Sourcebook of Career Information.
Weathersby, Rita E.; And Others
This is a sourcebook with two purposes, one philosophical and the other practical. It is a collection of information obtained through a questionnaire about the organizations, people, and programs currently involved in American education. It is hoped that the information will increase communication among agencies and individuals in education. This should result in higher standards of performance at all levels and a more accurate matching of resources and personnel. The second, more practical goal is that of providing a sourcebook of background information for people designing unconventional, or nonteaching, careers in education. The book discusses the role of industry, government (federal and state), schools and nonprofit organizations (research centers, foundations, and associations), and community organizations in education. For each of these sectors, a brief overview is given, followed by name, address, and descriptive profiles of specific corporations, agencies, and organizations. A section on "How to Find New Careers" gives advice on developing new career ideas and job hunting strategies. This is followed by profiles of individuals who have successfully created a new career in education. (DMT)
