The Trump Plan and the Utilization of the Differentiated Staff.
Holleman, I. Thomas, Jr.
Recommendations based on findings from a study of 40 secondary schools by a commission appointed to study staff utilization in secondary schools were released in January 1958. The recommendations, dubbed the "Trump Plan," are outlined in this report. The main proposals call for (1) organization of instruction into related classes that include small-group discussions, independent study, and large classes of from 100 to 150 students; (2) employment of teacher assistants; (3) flexible schedules; and (4) recognition of students' and teachers' individual differences. The final section summarizes the pros and cons of differentiated staffing reported in recent literature and current utilization of differentiated staffs in Temple City and Florida. (MLF)
