Summary

The assumption that instructional responsibility is to be gauged and compensated for on the basis of the specialty of teaching tasks is the most unacceptable thesis of differentiated staffing because of the difficulty of determining the relative degree of importance of the various teaching roles (e.g., curriculum developer, applier of research, classroom instructor). A more realistic alternative to professionally unsound hierarchical arrangements would be one which places the differentiated tasks of the specialists (in media, in diagnosis, in instructional technique) and the "generalists" on a horizontal continuum. And until we find a workable and justifiable alternative, the present salary schedule concept is the only manageable choice we have--unless we consider one schedule for both teachers and administrators. Stabilization of the teaching profession will first require (1) a reinforcement of the attitude that teaching is a cooperative, fraternal effort calling for solidarity among teachers, and (2) an effort by teachers and administrators to encounter the divisiveness evident in vertical certification and vertical differentiation plans. A Continuous Progress Alternative to the hierarchical ladders should be developed in the form of individualized inservice education programs--within a framework of certification justice for all teachers. (Included are further suggestions for certification and inservice education changes plus the results of a pilot study on the relative importance of various teaching roles.) (JS)
