WEDNESDAY, AUG. 28,1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Record Enrollment Due For Sc/ioo/s This Year By W. J. MatiFARLAN WASHINGTON (AP) — Lee M. Thurston, U. S. commissioner of education, said today a record 36,949,700 children will enroll in schools and colleges during the 1953-54 academic year. That would be two million more_ than the\ -previous record of 34,993,100 set last school year. fa Thurston praised the way the American people "are doing more than they have ever done before for the education of our nation's children," but in the san "This fall the United States will be short about 345,000 public elementary and secondary school classrooms. Three classrooms out of every five will be overcrowded. One out of every five pupils will go to school ... in a schoolhouse which does not meet minimum fire safety conditions." He also said school construction is not keeping pace with demands and not enough perons are being prepared to meet teacher needs. The commissioner said It was estimated that private and public elementary schools will enroll 26,931,000 children this coming school , year, with more than three million entering the first grade. Last year the enrollment was 25,349,000. The estimate lor all secondary schools is 7,302,000 pupils, compared with 7,028,000 last year, and colleges and universities are expected to enroll 2,500,000 compared with 2,400,000. "By 1960," Thurston said. "It Is estimated that there will be 10 mil-1 lion more pupils and students in our nation's schools and colleges, both public and private, than there were last spring." Taies tip The commissioner said Americans taxed themselves about 500 -.million dollars more last year than ]|(|the year before to provide for their schools; spent about 7'/ 2 billion dollars to operate the public schools and construct new buildings; and increased the average salary of the classroom teacher from about 53,240 to $3,400. Last year about 50,000 new classrooms were built, compared with 47,000 the preceding year, to eel new records, Thurston said, and another record of more than 50,000 new classrooms is expected this academic year. Despite this, he continued, "school construction in the United States Is not keeping pace with classroom needs. Increased enrollments, building deterioration and obsolescense will create the need for an additional 425,000 classrooms and related facilities by 1960. About 36,000 are in some stage of construction at this time." He said the national total capital Investment in elementary and secondary school plants Is 16 billion dollars for public and I 1 /? billion dollars for private schools with the colleges and universities having plants representing capital investment of 6'/ 2 billion dollars. "The number of persons being prepared as teachers is inadequate to meet teacher needs," he said. "Some 45,700 qualified graduates for the 1 elementary field came out of the colleges this year. Since there is a need for 118,000 public Reds, in Caps, Hove Red Faces PANMUNJOM yp)—Two attractive Polish women showed up today with a delegation of Polish and Czech officers to welcome returning North Koreans. Many of the Communist prisoners had discarded their clothes on the way to the exchange point in a last defiant gesture. By the time they sighted the Polish women — both Interpreters— they had little to cover themselves with except their caps. ! same statement he said: elementary school teachers, the net shortage of qualified elementary schoolteachers this September will be about 72,000. "This shortage can be overcome only by further overcrowding, or by recruiting into the elementary schools teachers whose qualifica ,,-— f all snort of durable standards."
