The Social Origins of Atlanta's Teachers. 1881, 1896, 1922
Newman, Joseph W.
Urban Education, 11, 1, 115-122, Apr 76
Finds that whereas the Atlanta public school teachers were, in 1881, a rather elite group, by 1896 the system was both re-orienting its secondary school curricula to serve an increasingly middle-class student body and hiring more middle class teachers, while in the twentieth century the system turned to teachers with higher levels of training but lower socio-economic status.
