Abstract: The Basic Education Program was authorized in 1984, and implementation began in 1985. Incremental increases were planned annually, and full implementation was expected to be achieved during the 1992-93 school year. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the North Carolina Basic Education Program staffing formulas/ratios would provide sufficient certified staff to school systems when the program was fully implemented to achieve equalization of opportunity in the educational program. This research investigated the problem of how school systems which vary greatly in population and geography planned to allocate personnel to provide a "basic education." The superintendents of the eighteen school systems in the Western Education Region in North Carolina were asked to schedule teachers into the required curriculum areas at various grade levels so that all of the required subjects of the Basic Education Program were offered and to complete a questionnaire designed to specifically gather data about the number of teachers required to fully implement the BEP.
