Empowering Teachers: The Key to School Based Reform.
Ashby, Suzanne; And Others
In this discussion of teacher empowerment, areas related to teacher sense of impact or efficacy are examined. These areas include: (1) administrative support; (2) responsibility for meaningful tasks; (3) control/decision making related to curriculum; (4) decisions on teaching assignments; (5) input on policies and procedures; and (6) choice in and determination of staff development. In discussing the role of the administrator in implementing teacher empowerment, it is pointed out that talented teachers must be discovered through careful observation and listening to their comments. Administrators need to identify the enthusiastic learner, the questioner, and the discriminating volunteer. (JD)
