Persistent Problems and Promising Solutions in Inservice Education. Report of Selected REGI Project Directors.
This report summarizes and presents information from interviews with 22 National Inservice Network project directors. The purpose was to identify problems and solutions encountered in directing regular education inservice (REGI) projects. The projects were sponsored by institutions of higher education, state and local education agencies, and an intermediate educational unit. Part 1 of this report contains an analysis of the problem areas cited by the directors and an analysis of information gathered in the interviews. Because most of the problems were in the broad area of working relationships, part 2 presents descriptions of the problems in the subdivided areas of: (1) low priority and few resources; (2) resistance to program goals; (3) lack of direct administrative involvement and support; (4) poor intra-organizational relations; and (5) other problems (not in the area of working relationships). Information for each of the problems includes the respondent's number of years as director, type of sponsoring agency, types of personnel trained in the program, the problem, and its solution. (FG)
