A Study Of Administrative And Supervisory Practices Affecting The Induction And Orientation Of Beginning Teachers, Paul A. Breeding

A Study Of The Objectives Of The Teachers Of The Etowah City School System In Relation To Actual Classroom Activities And The Total School Program, Helen Ruth Hopper

Masters Theses

(From the Introduction)

Supervisors of instruction in the State of Tennessee are necessarily concerned with improving instruction given to the children of the state. This mean, of course, that they are directly concerned with the teaching personnel and what the personnel teach.

A Study Of The Trends In The Level Of Preparation And Placement Of New Teachers In The White Public Schools Of Tennessee From 1938-1939 Through 1947-1948, Milburn N. Hopkins

Masters Theses

(From the Introduction)

Equalization of educational opportunity was an ideal expressed by the founders of our nation. It is a principle that is fundamental in American education--a principle based upon the assumption that our democracy is best served by extending to all children an equal minimum opportunity to attend schools staffed with the best qualified teachers available. A denial of this principle is to defeat the basic purposes of American education as they were expressed by its founders and a they have been developed to meet the needs of our modern society.

These rather basic problems will deal with how the leaders of the proposed program can go about arousing interest to get it started and the supplying of financial and material aid and moral support to keep it operating from ...
