The Influence Of Collective Bargaining On Teachers’ Salaries In New York State, David B. Lipsky, John E. Drotning Oct 1973

The Influence Of Collective Bargaining On Teachers’ Salaries In New York State, David B. Lipsky, John E. Drotning

Articles and Chapters

This study tests a model of teacher salary determination with data describing several aspects of all school districts in New York state, outside of New York City. The authors find that collective bargaining is not significant in explaining variations in 1968 teacher salaries among all school districts, but bargaining did have a significant effect among small districts and on the rate of salary change from 1967 to 1968. On the whole, however, the authors conclude that the results of this and other studies show that bargaining has had a surprisingly minor effect on teacher salaries.

Utilization Of Shorthand Skill By Manpower Development And Training Act Graduates From Utah State University For The Years 1968 Through 1971, Janice W. Hobbs May 1973

Utilization Of Shorthand Skill By Manpower Development And Training Act Graduates From Utah State University For The Years 1968 Through 1971, Janice W. Hobbs

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Vocational education is not a separate discipline within education, but it is a basic objective of all education and must b e a basic element of each person's education. The common objective should be a successful life in which employment has a crucial role.

It is the responsibility of the school and of the instructor to provide the student with the high quality vocational education that will enable that student to have a successful life by securing a good initial job adapting himself to that vocation.

What yardstick should one invoke to determine if the objective of a successful ...


The Uses Of Personal Typewriting By Students At Utah State University And Skyview High School, Joseph Henry Wilson May 1973

The Uses Of Personal Typewriting By Students At Utah State University And Skyview High School, Joseph Henry Wilson

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

The changing concept of the uses of the typewriter has had an enormous effect on the teaching of typewriting. In addition to the vocational objective, the personal-use objective has been added. Personal-use typewriting has as its goal the material that the student is likely to typewrite for himself; vocational typewriting is focused on what others want typed for them. The distinguishing characteristic in teaching the two is therefore not the skill accomplishment so much as the kind of material involved (13).

A study released by Hosler and Maske (4) seems to substantiate the reasoning that students in a personal-use typing ...


An Investigation Of Subject Matter Other Than Shorthand And Typewriting Emphasized In The Teaching Of Transcription Activities At The Utah Secondary Level, Susan Mcarthur May 1973

An Investigation Of Subject Matter Other Than Shorthand And Typewriting Emphasized In The Teaching Of Transcription Activities At The Utah Secondary Level, Susan Mcarthur

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Transcription is the ultimate goal of shorthand, according to Karaim, and mailable copy and rapid production are the primary aims of transcription. The ability to transcribe shorthand notes into usable printed form should be acquired before a stenographer has a marketable shorthand skill. Driska writes that "no matter how skillful the shorthand student may be in recording dictation, she is not properly fitted for work in an office unless she can transcribe her notes quickly and accurately."

Jester Writes that businessmen want transcripts which are correct in details of English mechanics, as well as being accurate transcripts of dictation. A ...

A Follow-Up Study Of 1968-1972 Business Data Processing Graduates Of Two-Year Degree And Certificated Programs In The Two State Supported Technical Colleges Of Utah, Robert B. Jenkins

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

The junior, community, or vocational-technical college is evolving into one of the most important educational institutions in the United States. The Carnegie Commission said, "Occupational programs should be given the fullest support and status within community colleges. These programs need to be flexibly geared to the changing requirements of society." Today's business society is constantly changing and this change necessitates constant analysis, evaluation, and revision of educational training programs. According to Goddard:

The development and improvement of junior college business curricula should be based on careful evaluation of present curricular offerings in business and extensive research into the nature ...


Individualized Instruction And The Utah Secondary Business Instructor, Don R. Hender May 1973

Individualized Instruction And The Utah Secondary Business Instructor, Don R. Hender

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Lloyd K. Bishop has stated that individualized instruction has been one of the most predominant themes in education for over a decade. Individualized instruction places as its central focus the welfare of the individual. All other elements are molded to facilitate the development of the individual.

One of the early outstanding presentations of this theme was that of Jean Jacques Rousseau in his immortal 'Emile'. The significance of the individual was one of the pervasive themes during the establishment of the United States of America. The welfare of the individual is one of the most prominent themes of government and ...


A Study To Determine The Extent Of Utilization Of Individualized Instruction In Typewriting, Lucille N. Pruitt May 1973

A Study To Determine The Extent Of Utilization Of Individualized Instruction In Typewriting, Lucille N. Pruitt

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

The trend today is toward the individualized approaches in the teaching of typewriting and other business subjects, Susan Schrumpf notes that this concept is continuously gaining popularity because the spotlight is clearly on the student -- his abilities and limitations -- and how the business educator can best minister his needs. if individualized instruction is utilized properly, it is the best possible preparation.

Keeping in mind that the primary goal of society is that of assisting the individual to reach his highest potential, individualization of instruction is the answer to many problems for vocational educators. Howe states:

A democratic society needs individuals ...

A Comparison Of Selected Characteristics Of Two-Year Office Administration And Four-Year Business Education Students At Utah State University, Moneice S. G. Stocker

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Much has been researched and written about school curriculum. A number of recent articles have focused attention on the student as an individual learner (Edmund, 1970) and away from "content" emphasis temporarily spurred by the advent of the Russian Sputnik (Cremin, 1961). Virtually every subject in the curriculum has been considered. The overall concern has been the improvement of student learning (Woolf, 1972). Efforts have also been made to increase the relevancy of learning.


The Allocation Of Resources To Education In Less Developed Countries, Gary S. Fields Apr 1973

The Allocation Of Resources To Education In Less Developed Countries, Gary S. Fields

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] In the last few years, many less developed countries have suddenly and apparently to their surprise found themselves with too many (relative to the absorptive capacity of their economies) rather than too few workers with intermediate educational attainments. Yet, even as surpluses of educated workers grow larger and larger, the school systems continue to expand and the people continue to demand education. Elsewhere, we have sought to understand the persistence of a high demand for education in countries characterized by a substantial surplus of educated labor. In this paper, we construct a political model of the allocation of resources ...

An Analysis Of The Relationship Between The Instructional Emphasis Of Two Filing Textbooks Commonly Used In Secondary Schools And Their Relation To The Filing Procedures In The Business Office, Patricia Ann Skinner

Master's Theses

This study compared the instructional material in two textbooks commonly used for high school filing instruction with the perceptions of records supervisors and office practice teachers.

A questionnaire was designed for each of the two major groups of respondents. Usable survey instruments were completed by supervisors of 67 offices in the Benton Harbor-St. Joseph area and office practice teachers in the 13 high schools in the same geographic area.

While the records supervisors and office practice teachers were in agreement on a number of points relating to the filing process and instructional emphases (using a rank-order mismatch formula), they were ...

Toward A Model Of Education And Labor Markets In Labor Surplus Economies, Gary S. Fields Jan 1973

Toward A Model Of Education And Labor Markets In Labor Surplus Economies, Gary S. Fields

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] This model is intended to describe the essential relationships between the demand for and supply of education and the demand for and supply of educated workers. The terms "education" and "training" will be used interchangeably throughout, since the proposed model is a general one designed to apply both to traditional education and to specialized training for such occupations as agricultural and veterinary workers, teachers, the skilled trades, and the like. The terms "educated," "trained," and "skilled" will also be used synonymously.

If the model is to be meaningful, it must possess two basic characteristics. First, it must be consistent ...
