THE STATUS OF PHYSICS TEACHING IN NORTH CAROLINA.
ANDERSON, NORMAN D.; GOODE, JOHN M.
AN ANALYSIS OF THE STATUS OF HIGH SCHOOL PHYSICS AND THE QUALIFICATIONS OF INSERVICE AND NEW PHYSICS TEACHERS IN NORTH CAROLINA IS PRESENTED. ALL SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN THE STATE WERE INCLUDED IN THE SURVEY. A RANDOM SAMPLE OF 88 TEACHERS WAS SELECTED FOR THE ANALYSIS OF THE QUALIFICATIONS OF PHYSICS TEACHERS. DATA WERE OBTAINED FROM THE BIENNIAL REPORTS OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS, TEACHER TRANSCRIPTS, AND TEACHER CERTIFICATION RECORDS. GRAPHS, TABLES, AND PERCENTAGES WERE USED TO INTERPRET FINDINGS. THE NUMBER OF SCHOOLS OFFERING PHYSICS AND THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS ENROLLED IN PHYSICS HAS SLOWLY INCREASED. MOST SCHOOLS WERE TEACHING ONE CLASS OF PHYSICS. THE MAJORITY OF THE TEACHERS WERE NOT ADEQUATELY PREPARED. FEW TEACHERS WERE BEING PREPARED OR CERTIFIED FOR SPECIALIZATION IN PHYSICS. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON RECENT ADVANCEMENTS IN PHYSICS (4TH, CHAPEL HILL, DECEMBER 28, 1965). (AG)
