The Teaching Staff of Secondary Schools in the United States, Amount of Education, Length of Experience, Salaries (Classic Reprint)
Sir: In pursuance of the recommendation of Prof. Edward L. Thorndike, of Columbia University, who, at my request, has assisted this office in the rearrangement of its statistical schedules, the plan has been adopted of separating the regular statistical inquires of the Bureau of Education into two divisions. The inquiries of the first division are made annually as heretofore, and are published in the Annual Report of the Commissioners of Education. Those of the second division are arranged in a series of five, one of them to be conducted each year, and the five-year cycle to be repeated in each successive five-year period: the results of the inquiries of this second division to be reported in various issues of the Bulletin of the Bureau of Education.
According to the Present plan the inquiries of this cycle will be made follows:
First year, the teaching force.
Second year, the body of learners ('pupils' and 'students').
Third year, the curriculum.
Fourth year, the fiscal side of educational administration.
Fifth year, special education.
The manuscript which I have the honor to transmit herewith is the first of those special reports in the five-year series. It presents a variety of significant facts with reference to the education, experience, and salaries of teachers in our secondary schools. It seems clear that such facts, which have not been so fully presented in any former publication, will be of use in many ways to the authorities in charge of our educational systems and to that general public on whose opinion our systems of education must rest. I have the honor to recommend, accordingly, that it be published as one number of the Bulletin of the Bureau of Education for the current year.
