Made popular by the Harvard Business School in the 1980s, Human Resources Management has become a fundamental part of any business, and different from other resources in the fact that people must be managed differently than other resources.

In an effort to accompany the growth and changing demographics of public education in the United States, School Personnel Administration/Human Resources: A California Perspective draws on the authors’ 70 years of teaching experience to help solve this growing problem.

School Personnel Administration/Human Resources: A California Perspective emphasizes the principles and practices of Personnel Management, with a focus on instructional staff and education as a whole.
