Organizational Specialists in Public Schools: A Profile. Occasional Paper No. 2.
This study reports on the findings of a survey conducted to determine why people join school Cadres and to determine the ways in which these groups recruit, select, and train new members. Fifty-two responses were received from Cadre organizations in Oregon, California, New York, Florida, and Idaho. A profile of the typical Cadre member includes information on the most common reasons for joining a Cadre, time allotments for Cadre work, influence as an individual and as a Cadre member on the school district, and personal characteristics. A discussion is presented on how Cadres select and train their new members. Some suggestions are made on improving the recruiting and training methods used by the typical Cadre. (JD)
