Accord Between Teacher, Board Urged by Dr.Ade HARRISBURG, Mar. 0.--Dr. Les- cr K. Adc, superintendent ot Public nstruction, stated today that a co- ac-rative attitude and a spirit of .utual agreement between teachers nd school directors .ire characteris- c of the administration ot schools here the best interests of the boys nd girls of the community are given rst consideration. "The tcrmina- on oC a teacher's contract mny be or the betterment o£ the local school, r it may be for the betterment of he teacher," the superintendent said. 'If it can be dcflr.itcly shown that 10 local schools will be improved by elcasinfi the teacher, the contract, lould, if possible, be tcrmimited by ,utual agreement between teacher nd board. If the undesirable to.-irher ·ill not willingly relinquish his con- ract, however, then the legal pro- cdure for forcing a release should e followed. On the other hand, if a elcasce from contract is requested y the teacher because it will obr iously enable him to advance in his rofession, the board should endeavor reach a basis of mutual undcr- tanding whereby the contract may 10 set aside. "The school law sets up a definite procedure whereby a board of school directors mny, on short notice, force he dismissal of an incompetent cachcr. Tactful boards, however, find it possible in most instances to confer with such a teacher and ob- ,ajn a resignation without resorting ,o formal dismissal proceedings. "Likewise the law sets up a procedure by which a teacher may foicc a 'board to release him sixty days nftcr his resignation has been filed Here again it is preferable that th release be accomplished by conference and mutual agreement rather than by legal compulsion. If a capable teacher is rcndily obtainable fo replacing the one desiring release there is no good reason why tin board should insist upon all its prc rogattivcs and arbitrarily hold thi teacher the full sixty days. If it 1 really impossible for the teacher to be replaced, then, of course, a sense of loyalty and professional pride should induce the teacher to carry out his contract even at the sacrifice of a desirable promotion."
