PAGE SETVEN: More Preparation Now Required Makes School Teaching a Profession E d u c a t o r Compares Present Days to Those Of Years Ago. THINKS STANDARD WILL GO HIGHER "Teaching has never been a profession" said Dr. A. F. Myers of New York University Saturday "but for the first time m history, it is rapidly becoming one." He explained that professions had certain characteristics that had not as yet been established in teaching. They were listed as a long period of preparation, a long period of service and the certain codes that rule the group engaged In a profession. Dealing with the period of preparation he said it was only recently that States have done anything to raise the requirements necessary for teaching. Early teachers seldom got secondary training and even today some States hire persons to teach in their schools who have not received the benefits of a high school education, he said. However, he pointed out, most states are gradually increasing the number of years of training required and he predicted that at a not very far-distant future, elementary teachers In Pennsylvania would be required to complete a four-year college course while secondary instructors would need five years of training. From the point of service he satd that surveys showed the average number of teaching years, estimated nt five years in 1922, had increased to 10 years in 1930 and that the present day average was probably somewhere between 12 and 15 years. Going back to tho beginning of American schools he said that early statesmen decided on "universal" education because it was necessary to educate the public in order to promote democracy. Since there were few educated people at that time, the schools were staffed with teachers ·who had little or no training. For that reason theirs could hardly be called a profession. Dr. Myers said teaching interest tell off during tho World War chiefly because more money could be made in other lines of occupation. In order to revive that interest action was taken by State legislatures to Increase salaries, retirement pensions wero-sct up and lastly, the tenure law is being adopted in many states for teachers' protection. "The result has been a tremendous surplus of teachers for tho Jobs available and In order to check or reduce this surplui, the requirements necessary to enter the teaching profession «re being Increased," he said. Reiterating tha charge bo made Friday afternoon that teacher appointments by school boards ere purely political ones, he said: "Every decent board of education turns th« power of selecting teachers over to its superintendent." He closed hit remarks by predicting that »ome day the teachers themselves might have o voice In determining who were qualified to become members of the teaching profession. Dr. Charles E. .Frail, dean of tha school of education at the University of Pittsburgh, made his first appearance at the educational conference and outlined a 20-point program fo teachers to follow in order that the students might receive the greates possible benefits. He said teachers in general were superior to the discharge of their obligations but that the best teachers were constantly working towards some goal. He claimed the difference between superior and average teachers could I L. "While Collar" Workers Take Wage Cut By United Frew.
