Retrenching Secondary and Elementary School Teachers: A Mathematical Model.
Oliver, Ronald L.
Retrenchment is defined as the reduction of secondary and elementary school teachers. Retrenchment is carried out in two ways: reduce by program or reduce by teacher. In this paper the author proposes a mathematical model for use in reduction by teacher. The key educational manager for implementing the model is the building principal, who should be professionally prepared and personally dedicated. The retrenchment model is composed of 5 major categories and 10 subcategories that are used for teacher ranking. Teachers are compared to each other in norm groups by the same scorer to maintain reliability. It is important that the board of education have a policy regarding retrenchment and that the superintendent and principals know far enough in advance the number of teachers to be dismissed.
