Teaching as a Career. Bulletin, 1947, No. 11
Frazier, Benjamin W.
Office of Education, Federal Security Agency
Following the setbacks of wartime, teaching is once more on the march toward a professional status that is in keeping with its great importance to the Nation and to the world. Numerous agencies have expressed the need for an authoritative statement setting forth the facts on which a young person might base a decision to enter upon teaching as a career. To meet this need, Pamphlet 95, entitled "Teaching as a Profession," was first published by the U.S. Office of Education in 1944. This bulletin constitutes a complete revision of Pamphlet 95. The data have been brought up to date and most of the test has been completely rewritten. An earnest attempt has been made to present the facts about teaching as objectively as possible. Following a Foreword, the contents are as follows: (1) General nature of the profession; (2) Specializing in the teaching profession; (3) Teacher supply, demand, and placement; (4) Nature of the teacher's work; (5) Working and living conditions; (6) Requirements for becoming a teacher; and (7) Opportunities for preparation. (Contains 3 charts and 3 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
