The major challenges and issues that are shaping public education and human resources administration in the United States today are the focus of the new Sixth Edition of this widely popular text, Human Resources Administration: Personnel Issues and Needs in Education. The authors stress the critical role of personnel and the central importance of human resources administration in the achievement of the goals and objectives of an educational system. They provide sound information, the latest relevant research, and actual illustrations and examples from real school districts in their coverage of all of the primary HR processes: planning, recruitment, selection, induction, development, negotiation, compensation, organizational climate, and the contribution effective HR administration can make to the improvement of student achievement. Both traditional topics and the most current concerns in the field are presented.

NEW This book is a major revision of the fifth edition and contains updated material and current relevant research throughout.

NEW Selected data tables and figures are eliminated from this edition, while new ones are added to serve as graphic organizers and to enrich and illustrate chapter content.

NEW Chapter-by-chapter revisions appear in the Preface for those who have used previous editions of the text.

Editorial Reviews

In this update of their 1994 edition, Webb and Norton both of Arizona State U. devote new chapters to the impact of the organizational climate on the human resources function, and the human resources recruitment program, and integrate computer technology into each chapter rather than sequestering it in its own. For interested citizens as well as education professionals, the 14 chapters address the latest trends in the field as well as the traditional topics: e.g. strategic HR planning, collective bargaining, legal aspects, maximizing human resources, performance appraisal, and the compensation process.
