Teacher Management and Records in the National Education System: Resource Book for Educational Administrators.
Guidelines for teacher management procedures are presented in this resource book, which focuses on developing an information record system. Examples are drawn from countries with rapidly expanding education systems in Africa, particularly southern Africa. The book is an outcome of a series of four workshops organized by the Human Resource Development Group of the Commonwealth Secretariat. The first section describes tasks in educational personnel management, such as policy formation, the personnel management staff, teachers' conditions of service and rewards, effective management style, and teachers' views of personnel management. The second section describes maintaining personnel management records, including manual record systems, computerized records, and the teacher information system as a management tool. Other aspects of personnel work are discussed in section 3: the role of teaching service commissions, staff appraisal and development, issues for female teachers, and disciplinary procedures. The final section outlines planning aspects of teacher management, which involves developing a staff establishment formula and planning for teacher supply. Fifteen tables and four figures are included. (LMI)
