Educational Foundations and Curriculum
The time has come when every elementary-school teacher should be a college graduate. This could be accomplished immediately following the war if each state should require a college education as a prerequisite to the certification of newly trained teachers. When the standards for the education of teachers and for initial certification are raised to this level, the standards of school service will automatically reach an appropriate level. It is hoped that the public (parents) will soon rise up and demand this degree of professional respectability of the teachers of their children.
