Journalism Teacher Training.
Yagle, Pamela D.
This study examines the quality of the education programs offered by colleges and universities preparing high school journalism teachers. Following a lengthy review of the literature dating to the 1920s, the results of a questionnaire survey on journalism education are reported. The questionnaire was mailed to 117 persons associated with journalism education and high school journalism instruction. The total number of respondents was 104 (89 percent) of the 117 who received questionnaires. Some of the conclusions were that 54 high schools (51.9 percent of the 104 responding) have departments or schools of journalism that offer one course in high school journalism and advising, the most common number of credit hours available in high school journalism-publications advising is three semester hours (five quarter hours), the majority of schools surveyed do not offer summer workshops in high school journalism-publications subjects, and more high school oriented journalism course offerings are being planned by many of the colleges and universities.
