Education of Teachers as a Function of State Departments of Education. Bulletin, 1940, No. 6. Monograph No. 6
Frazier, Benjamin W.
Office of Education, Federal Security Agency
Because of the individual authority of each State for its own educational program, practices and policies differ widely among them in many respects. Yet in the midst of differences there are also common elements of development. The U. S. Office of Education, in presenting this series of monographs, has attempted to point out those common elements, to analyze the differences, and to present significant factors in State educational structure. In so doing, it accedes to the requests of a large number of correspondents who are students of State school administration and who have experienced the need for the type of material offered in this series. The present monograph deals primarily with the administrative and professional functions and services of State departments of education involved in the preservice education of teachers; it treats of the overhead organization and administration of 107 teacher-education institutions governed by State boards of education and of the supervision or coordination of 1,089 other publicly and privately controlled institutions that prepare teachers; and it deals incidentally with State teacher personnel functions closely related to the education of teachers, such as teacher certification and placement. Chapters include: (1) Introduction; (2) Overhead Control and Coordination of Institutions that Educate Teachers; (3) Composition and Personnel of State Boards and Departments of Education in Relation to Institutional Government; (4) Administrative and Supervisory Functions and Services; (5) Specific Methods of Rendering Services; and (6) Summary of Suggestions and Proposals for Improvement. (Contains 9 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
