A project will recruit 40 educationally and financially disadvantaged young Negro men, many of them veterans, to prepare them for secondary school English teaching in city schools. Students will be granted probationary college admission and enrolled in special seminars to overcome deficiencies in language and study skills; operating initially on a full-time basis, the seminars will phase out gradually over the first two years. Students will also receive individual counseling by staff members and tutoring by seniors in the present undergraduate teacher training program. During the first two or three years (the length of time depending on the individual progress of each student), candidates will pursue a pre-education pattern and then as they become juniors will enter the professional teacher training program which is currently under revision to make it more consistent with the demands of today's urban schools. Students will live at home and will receive a stipend of $2,000 per year so that they may devote their energies full time to academic and cultural pursuits.
