The Seventy-first Congress authorized a survey of the education of teachers on a Nation-wide scope, conducted during the last 3 years. After the work of the survey was organized it was apparent that only a limited number of studies could be undertaken with the time and funds available. It was decided, therefore, to cooperate whenever possible with individuals and organizations at work on any of the problems in the education of teachers which were not included for extensive treatment in the survey. In this way the scope of the survey was greatly extended and a number of very important problems were studied intensively which otherwise would have been omitted. This document consists of nine parts: (1) History of the professional education of teachers in the United States; (2) The education of teachers evaluated through measurement of teaching ability; (3) Student welfare and extracurriculum activities; (4) Library facilities of teachers colleges (compared with a selected group of liberal arts colleges); (5) Reading interests of teachers; (6) In-service education of teachers; (7) The preparation of teachers for small rural schools; (8) The training of teachers in Europe; and (9) Summary of cooperative studies in the education of teachers. Individual chapters contain footnotes. (Contains 147 tables, 1 figure, and 2 charts.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
