Job Motivations and Satisfactions of Science Teachers in Predomininantly Negro Colleges. [Appendix C: Supporting Tables, not microfilmed at request of author. Available for consultation at University of Minnesota Library].
Manning, Ivory Cleon
This study focused on factors which had helped attract faculty members to science teaching careers in 34 public and 33 private predominantly Negro colleges. A questionnaire was mailed to 485 teachers, 78 percent of whom responded. The data were organized for further analysis according to: (1) private-public college affiliation, (2) racial origin, (3) routes taken to enter college teaching, and (4) science teaching fields. The analyses indicated that predominantly Negro colleges usually recruit science teachers from their own region. Negroes comprised less than half (46 percent) of the science faculties in the colleges. These teachers came generally from a lower-middle class background. The decision to become college science teachers took shape over many years. A majority of these faculty members earlier served as high school teachers or in nonacademic positions; few came directly from graduate school. These teachers were generally satisfied with their choice of science teaching and most planned to continue at their jobs. (Author/PS)
