Current Practices and Procedures in the Use of Substitute Teachers.
Rose, Terry L.; And Others
This report provides statistics on employment, evaluation, and training practices and procedures of American public school substitute teachers. A questionnaire was mailed to the directors of substitute teachers in 401 randomly selected school districts. Usable information was returned by 259 school systems (64.6 percent) in 49 states and the District of Columbia. Frequencies were tabulated for 25 variables pertaining to employment practices and procedures in large, medium, and small school districts. Findings generally demonstrate that a majority of school districts may employ unqualified or minimally qualified persons to substitute for absent teachers, offer them little or no training to perform that role, and then not evaluate their performance. Included is a table of questionnaire items with responses in frequencies and percentages. (JAM)
