TEACHERS FOR OUR BIG CITY SCHOOLS.
BIVLIN, HARRY N.
THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS OF ATTRACTING AND RETAINING SUFFICIENT NUMBERS OF QUALIFIED TEACHERS. A MORE EXTENSIVE AND INTELLIGENT USE CAN BE MADE OF EXISTING LABORATORY SCHOOLS AND AFFILIATED SCHOOLS FOR URBAN TEACHER EDUCATION. INCREASED EFFORT CAN BE MADE IN POINTING TEACHER EDUCATION TOWARD URBAN TEACHING RATHER THAN PRESENTING ONLY THE DISCOURAGING ASPECTS OF THE PROBLEM. NEW PATTERNS OF TEACHER EDUCATION FOR URBAN SCHOOLS CAN BE DEVISED. INCLUDING THAT OF PREPARING LIBERAL ARTS GRADUATES FOR TEACHING. MORE "INMIGRANT" YOUTH FROM URBAN AREAS SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND COLLEGE AND TO PREPARE FOR TEACHING. OPTIMUM USE SHOULD BE MADE OF AVAILABLE TEACHING MEDIA. EFFORTS CAN BE MADE TOWARD GREATER COOPERATION BETWEEN SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES. PROCEDURES FOR APPOINTING TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS TO URBAN SCHOOLS CAN BE IMPROVED AND MADE MORE REALISTIC AND EFFICIENT. MORE HELP CAN BE GIVEN THE INEXPERIENCED URBAN TEACHER, AND MORALE OF EXPERIENCED TEACHERS CAN BE RAISED. INSERVICE TRAINING SHOULD BE LOOKED UPON AS A MEANS OF IMPROVING THE TEACHER'S EFFECTIVENESS, NOT MERELY A ROAD TO A HIGHER PAY SCALE.
