The Seventy-first Congress authorized a survey of the education of teachers on a Nation-wide scope. The board of consultants and the associate director were appointed in July 1930. The Survey was organized and its scope determined by October of that year. The next 2 years were spent in gathering data and the time since then in preparing, editing, and publishing the findings. The Survey report is contained in six volumes. The first five volumes contain the results of the special investigations with the interpretations and recommendations of the Survey staff members responsible for each study. This volume, the sixth in the series, combines a summary of the studies plus an interpretation of the teacher-training situation in this country. It is divided into five chapters, as follows: (1) Introduction--Scope and Purpose of the Survey; (2) Raising the Level of Education of American Teachers; (3) Making the Preparation of Teachers More Professional; (4) Controlling the Demand for and Supply of Public-School Teachers; and (5) The Education of Teachers in the United States--Principles and Problems. (Contains 50 footnotes, 7 tables, and 4 figures.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
