Professional Problems of Trade and Technical Education Teachers in the Fifteen Area Post-Secondary Schools of Iowa with Implications for In-Service Teacher Education.
Holmen, Holger Emanuel
To ascertain the professional problems of teachers of trade and technical education and to solicit opinions regarding probable causes, 103 Iowa post-secondary trade and technical teachers and their 26 immediate supervisors were interviewed. Some findings were: (1) 37 percent of the teachers had no formal education beyond high school; almost 17 percent were college graduates, (2) 7.8 percent had served a formal indentured apprenticeship, (3) 35 percent had 20 or more years of trade experience and only 4 percent had had less than 5 years, and (4) The teacher spent an average of 27.5 hours per week in classroom and laboratory activities. Problems and perceived causes were classified as relating to: (1) teaching and evaluation, (2) working with others, including making the transition from industry, and motivating students, and (3) facilities. Some primary causes indicated were inadequate time, teaching experience, educational preparation, inservice training, materials, and facilities. This Ed.D. dissertation was submitted to the University of Missouri. (JK)
