Personnel Administration in Education: Leadership for Instructional Improvement. Second Edition.
Harris, Ben M.; And Others
The central thesis of this book is that personnel administration must be concerned more with the process of educational change and less with the filling of openings, more with instructional change and less with instructional personnel per se. The 12 chapters deal with these personnel administration topics: (1) the improvement of instruction through staffing, (2) the functions of staff personnel, (3) innovations and traditions in staffing, (4) managing personnel services, (5) competency specifications for personnel, (6) recruiting and selecting personnel, (7) assigning and balancing staff groups, (8) staffing practices relating to women and minority groups, (9) due process and other legal requirements, (10) financial problems and collective bargaining, (11) personnel evaluation, and (12) training for professional personnel management. Each chapter includes a summary, and 26 exhibits are provided. Employee selection and teacher appraisal information, as well as standards, policies, and practices for school personnel administration are included in eight appendices. Also included are a total of 323 references and an index. (WTH)
