Characteristics of professional personnel in college and university libraries by Anita R Schiller( Book )

5 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objectives of this survey were to describe the characteristics of librarians employed on the staffs of the more than 2,000 higher educational institutions in the United States in 1966-57, and to identify and examine relevant manpower issues. The report is based on the responses of 2,282 individuals, or 93 percent of 2,459 sampled full-time employees. Geographic origin, age, marital and family status, professional and academic degrees held, present positions, academic status and rank, and salaries are reported for all academic librarians, and for men and women. Data from other relevant studies are used to indicate trends and comparisons. Opinions of library career and of salary are reported. Major manpower issues are seen as--the importance of challenging work as a characteristic of the library career, recognition of special problems in librarianship where women are a numerical majority, need to eliminate discrimination, importance of full faculty status for academic librarians, and need for more equitable salaries. Appendix a (pages 93-104) contains a technical note on sampling procedures and results by James W. Grimm. (author.rp)

New directions in vocational education : case studies in change by Bernard Asbell( Book )

3 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent efforts of the U.S. Office of Education to bridge the gap between development and adaptation of educational practice, visibility has been given to communities which have introduced new curriculums, teaching methods, and institutional patterns. Five locally-initiated programs which have attempted to provide a flexibility of the educational system to meet the needs of students of various backgrounds and ability levels have been selected for exposure on the basis of community size, geographical region, and program type. The "richmond pretechnical program" now operating in 19 high schools in the San Francisco bay area uses students' practical and occupational interest as a means of developing general and academic skills by unifying physics, math, English, and shop courses to eliminate artificial fragmentation of subject matter. Georgia's 18 post-secondary vocational schools, geared to industry demands, required changed attitudes and new administrative technIQues to grow from a school system devoted almost entirely to training for agricultural occupations. The "market street school" in Warren, Ohio, brought sixth to ninth grade slow learners together in an entirely new environment to provide needed general and vocational skills. Phoenix, Arizona, built into its educational structure a complete paramedical training capability by cooperative effort of the professions, hospitals, educational institutions, and education leaders at state and local levels. Quincy, Massachusetts, is an example of a city in which vocational education has shifted from training for a single skill to preparing individuals for a cluster of occupational skills.

An analysis of causes of anxiety among children in school by Beeman N Phillips( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic purpose of this study was to attempt to find out whether anxiety in elementary school children was to a significant degree the result of school experiences and conditions. The antecedents and consequences of school anxiety were also to be analyzed. The method of study involved obtaining measures of school anxiety at the beginning and end of the school year over a period of 2 or more school years, and comparing the trend which is found during the time children are under the combined influence of in-school and out-of-school environment (and maturation) with the trend during the time they are under only the direct influence of out-of-school environment (and were selected as subjects. Data were obtained on the subjects from cumulative records, the children, and their teachers. The metropolitan achievement tests, the california test of mental maturity, and the children's school questionnaire were administered to the subjects. Teacher nominations of children with a wide variety of behavioral characteristics were a major source for the data gathered. Findings were complex and require study in context. At the methodological level, however, the usefulness of the in-school and out-of-school paradigm was demonstrated. (Ed)
Socio-economic profile of credit students in the North Carolina community college system by Gerald M Bolick( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary purpose of this study is to provide an up-to-date report on certain social and economic characteristics of credit students enrolled in a newly established comprehensive community college system. A socioeconomic data sheet was constructed by the writer and completed by 11,184 students enrolled in 42 North Carolina community colleges and technical institutes. Comparisons were made between North Carolina students and those in other states, in addition to comparisons among the program areas and among curriculums within the occupational programs. The study indicates that the community colleges and technical institutes, through the open-door policy, have successfully extended universal education beyond the high school. But certain factors should be strengthened if these institutions are to provide a sound educative program for all the community. The results of the study indicate that there should be a determined effort to provide additional opportunities for the lower socioeconomic groups, the female, the evening student, and the student over 25. Social activities and the housing situation should be reviewed and adapted to the local situation. A more coordinated effort among the high schools, the community colleges and technical institutes, and the senior colleges is needed to provide a sound educative program for all the community.
