Caliver, Ambrose
Office of Education, United States Department of the Interior
The Seventy-first Congress authorized a survey of the education of teachers on a Nation-wide scope which has been conducted during the last 3 years. This document on the education of Negro teachers in the United States comprises the fourth in a series of six volumes in which the survey findings are reported. The data in this volume present the most recent and the most comprehensive picture of the educational preparation and present status of Negro teachers in public schools in the States in which separate schools for Negroes are maintained. Information is presented in eight chapters: (1) introduction, providing a general statement and description of the present study; (2) elementary teachers--their professional preparation, experience and tenure, salary, and supply and demand; (3) secondary school teachers--their professional preparation, experience, teaching load and subjects taught, and salaries of Negro high school teachers; (4) the college staff--their educational level, experience and tenure, teaching duties, community contacts, publications, salary, and administrative officers; (5) curriculum offerings and practices in the preparation of Negro teachers--semester credits, curricula, and problems and issues; (6) content and methods of teaching representative courses; (7) certain administrative practices and policies in institutions for the education of Negro teachers--size, admissions and enrollments, curriculum policies and practices, special curriculum features, practice teaching, extracurricular activities, and educational aims and issues; and (8) findings, conclusions, and recommendations--concerning teaching personnel, curriculum offerings and practices, and administrative practices and policies. The facts presented should serve as the basis for the development of State programs for the better preparation of Negro teachers with resulting improvement in public school opportunities for this group. (Contains 183 footnotes, 77 tables, and 7 figures.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
