The future of the United States within the global world market depends more today than ever on its public education system.  Core to the success of public education systems within the United States is the effectiveness and the efficiency of the human resource function as part of the total educational process.  The ninth edition of The Human Resource Function in Educational Administration has been revised extensively, as well as expanded in scope, and new chapters have been added.  Without exception, all chapters contain important web links and cite recent research to guide informed decision making at the local school district level.
