AFTERTHOUGHTS ON A PROFESSION.
PARKER, WILLIAM RILEY
THE AUTHOR DISCUSSES THE ORGANIZATION OF THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROFESSION. THE PROBLEMS, CONFUSION, WASTEFUL COMPETITION, AND UNCOORDINATED ACTIVITY RESULTING FROM THE PROLIFERATION OF PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS IN THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE FIELD ARE DESCRIBED. THE SOLUTION SUGGESTED TO REMEDY THIS SITUATION IS THE CREATION OF A NEW, NATIONAL MEMBERSHIP ORGANIZATION TO PROMOTE THE INTERESTS OF ALL TEACHERS OF MODERN AND CLASSICAL LANGUAGES AT ALL LEVELS, AN ORGANIZATION THAT WOULD, AMONG OTHER THINGS, COORDINATE THE SCATTERED ACTIVITIES OF EXISTING GROUPS, ATTACK BASIC PROBLEMS, ISSUE POLICY STATEMENTS, ENCOURAGE EXPERIMENTATION, DISTRIBUTE A PEDAGOGICAL JOURNAL, AND SECURE FOUNDATION AND FEDERAL SUPPORT FOR PROJECTS. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED TO THE KENTUCKY FOREIGN LANGUAGE CONFERENCE (19TH, LEXINGTON, APRIL 20, 1966). (AM)
