Cedar Falls—"The once leisurely stork has gone in for jet propulsion in passing around new babies m the last decade, whereas the means for supplying teachers for these hundreds ' of thousands. of children is still lumbering along at a horse and buggy pace," says Iowa State Teachers college registrar, Doctor Marshall R. Beard. "More than 100,000' new grade school teachers will be needed in each of the next .10 years. Less than i of this number of qualifipc elementary teachers were graduated from colleges in 1948, and prospects for an increase in the supply are not bright," Doctor Beard says. Affects U. S. Schools The Teachers college registrai quoted from a national study o: teacher supply and. demand, just released by the National Education association, which covers the 1( year period between 1949 anc 1958 as it will affect the nation' schools. Among the factors explaining the marked increase in the neec for new grade school teachers is an increase in births, during the last 10 years, of 8 million, over the previous decade, with a consequent increase of grade school enrollments. In addition it is estimated that nearly half a million teachers will leave the profession during the period considered, due to marriage, death, shifting to administrative duties, and other normal requirements. Inducements Needed "Althoughschool and community groups 'have co-operated on a large scale within the past few years to make the teaching profession more desirable through higher salaries and better working 'conditions, it is evident that further measures are necessary to induce intelligent and alert young men and women to train for this important field," savs D o c t o i Beard. The need for intensive, nationwide, selective recruitment programs is imperative, according to the N. E. A. study, 'a statement with-which Doctor Beard agrees "We must enlist even more of the best students from the high schoa graduating classes," he says. "In order to make a good elementary teacher," Doctor Bearc continues, "you need to. start with the high school graduate who has made a satisfactory scholarship record, who has a wholesome personality, who is a leader, and who has an interest in young children and other people."
