Issues of Human Resource Management in Schools and the Relevance of Research.
Consideration of the research agenda of the Center for Educational Policy and Management (CEPM) in Eugene (Oregon) is aided by placing it in the context of current issues in educational policy and management, and by identifying policy and management decisions that can benefit from CEPM's research agenda. Three decision-making domains are the foci of disagreement in education. The domains include the structure of student work, aiming at the improvement of learning; the structure of teacher work, including instructional practices and the work environment; and administrator work structure, including policy-setting and working conditions. At the same time there are three types of issues: technical issues, meaning instrumental or "how-to" problems; cooperative issues, involving human interaction aspects of educational activities; and assumptive or semantic issues, concerning educational values and cultural constructs and ideology. The three decision domains--student, teacher, and administrator work structures--each have different technical, cooperative, and assumptive issues. For each type of issue within each domain, different research has been done, by CEPM and others, and different research needs exist. (RW)
