Corwin, Ronald G.; Edelfelt, Roy A.
This document provides ideas and information for those responsible for preparation of education personnel. It includes papers and other materials expressing several views on organizational problems in schools. The problems that teachers encounter in coping with the social hierarchy within the school are discussed as well as their responsibilities to the organization itself. School systems are examined from a sociological point of view. The nature and status of teaching is explored within the framework of the school as a social system operating in the wider arena of the community. (JD)
