The Education Professions, 1969-70.
This annual report on the state of the education professions focuses on the problem of educating students from low-income families in an attempt to sharpen understanding of the issues involved. Subjects for the chapters were chosen with respect to concern with these particular problems and because surveys had been conducted which bear on them providing new data. Chapter 1 focuses on teaching low-income students and defines some of the major issues in educating these children in inner-city schools. Chapter 2 sets forth the Commissioner's plans to allocate funds authorized by the Education Professions Development Act, most of which are directed to serving the needs of low-income children. The next three chapters report on recent studies and surveys as they relate to students from low-income families. Chapter 3 is an analysis of data derived from a pilot survey of staffing patterns in the elementary and secondary schools which was conducted by the National Center for Educational Statistics. Chapter 4 examines some of the problems in educating Mexican-American children. Chapter 5 delineates the role of 2-year colleges in serving low-income students. The final chapter is a projection of the needs for educational personnel in vocational and technical education with particular emphasis given to the personnel who serve the economically disadvantaged. Appendixes contain a description of EPDA activities (1969 and 1970) and an explanatory note on the supply of and demand for educational personnel. (Author/JS)
