Making Do in the Classroom: A Report on the Misassignment of Teachers.
This report outlines the parameters within which teacher misassignment or out-of-field teaching can occur in the United States. Information is provided on results of a telephone survey collected between December 1984 and February 1985 to certification and accreditation officals in state education agencies in an attempt to discover the extent of teacher out-of-field assignments. Results from all 50 states are offered. Articles are included describing the practice of teacher misassignment in specific states and schools. Included in the discussion are reflections on the pressures leading administrators to misassign staff, some of the results in the classrooms, and efforts to regulate and reform the practice. (JD)
