Macroeconomic issues today : alternative approaches by Robert Barry Carson( Book )

"Now revised and updated throughout to reflect critical changes in economic policy, and including all-new coverage of the current debate on the Social Security system, this acclaimed text provides a unique approach to understanding what the practice of economics is all about. In non-technical, everyday language, it covers current macroeconomic issues and offers proposed solutions from Conservative, Liberal, and Radical perspectives." "The book's unique approach stimulates critical thinking on everyday issues that traditional texts either ignore or present as "settled" debates. It helps students to understand the dual role that ideology and logical/empirical argumentation play in economics. Issues are presented as stand-alone subjects that can be read in any sequence and used to supplement a wide range of principles of economics texts."--Jacket

Teacher participation in the community; role expectations and behavior by Robert Barry Carson( Book )

5 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To examine the role and functions of teachers as social participants within the school and in the community, questionnaire survey data were analyzed from a 62 percent response of teachers (508 of 816 total) and a 93 percent response of nonteachers (81 of 87 total) in three western oregon communities. As viewed by teachers, normative expectations and actual practices of teachers for 16 educational activities (E.G., teaching assignments, planning school plant expansion, and developing school budgets) were indicated on a continuum ranging from appropriateness of formal participation in specific decisionmaking processes to policy establishment and extent of personal involvement. Additional measures were determined for teacher perception of their appropriate social participation and influence at the community level. As viewed by nonteachers, comparative data defining teacher role norms were obtained from principals, superintendents, school board members, and community influentials. General findings indicated that social participation experiences and aspirations with respect to educational activities and community life are limited for most teachers in three ways--(1) teachers believe their wide participation in such activities is inappropriate, (2) they have not participated extensively in these activities, and (3) they do not aspire toward a powerful decisionmaking role either in education or in community life. Fifty-nine empirical findings are appended. This document is also available from the publications department, center for the advanced study of educational administration, hendricks hall, university of oregon, eugene, oregon 97403, for $2.00.
