Massive

Teacher

Dissatisfaction

By HAL COOPER
Associated Press Writer
NEW YORK - The approach
of the new school year found the
chronic shortage of qualified
teachers worse than ever in many
'parts, of the United States, an
Associated Press survey conclud-
ed yesterday.
In some states the situation was
worsened by mass resignations or
threats of resignations to enforce
demands for higher wages.
As in the past, school oficials
cited better salaries in business
and industry, and the military
draft, as prime reasons for' the
shortage. But a summer of urban
rioting introduced another factor:
widespread refusal by teachers to
work in slum schools.
The Chicago public school sys-
tem, for example, had 700 teach-
ing vacancies near the end of
August. "We don't have a teacher
i shortage - only a shortage of

teachers willing to work full time
where they are needed," said Dr.
Louise Disterle, director of teach-
ing recruitment for the Chicago
Board of Education. "By that I
mean the inner city schools, par-
ticularly in the Negro areas on the
West Side." Forrest E. Orebaugh,
personnel director of the Cincin-
nati school system, reported a
similar situation.
"The riots are a problem," Ore-
baught said. "It's the same in all
the large cities. Teachers tend to
go to the smaller cities and sub-
urbs where there are fewer dis-
advantaged children and more
stable conditions."'
Hurts City Schools
Franklyn S. Berry, superinten-I
dent of schools in Syracuse, N.Y.,
said "the recruiting problem is the
toughest in the so-called inner
city schools and I suspect the
recent disturbances haven't help-
ed."

At the beginning of the last
week of August, Detroit was still
looking for 530 teachers, compar-
ed with a shortage of 500 at the
same stage of 1966.
"Teachers aren't being trained
fast enough," said a Detroit
School Board official.
Business Drains Personnel
"Business and industry still can
pay more than beginning teach-
er salaries." Detroit's beginning
salary is $6,400. Of Michigan's
500-odd school districts, 158 had
failed to reach contracts with
teachers seeking higher wages.
"It is largely a financial prob-
lem," said Dr. Dane P. Whitmer,
school superintendent of Pontiac,
"Both sides want to do what's
right but the money is not avail-
able."
New York City, where schools
are to open Sept. 11 faces a
threat of mass .resignations by
56,724 teachers who demand more

money and better working con-
ditions.
Mayor John Lindsay appoint-
ed a mediation panel on Aug. 12
and set Sept. 1 as the target date
for a settlement.
Frederick C. McLaughlin, dir-
ector of the New York City Public
Education Association, accused
the United Federation of an AFL-
CIO union, of "using cliff-hang-
ing techiques in reaching contract
agreements."
Some school officials predicted
the teachers would hold out for
at least as big a pay raise as New
York policemen and firemen re-
cently won. This worked out at
$1,375 a man, plus fringe benefits,
over 27 months.
The city's beginning teacher
salary is $5,400. The board of
education has offered to raise this
to $6,200.
Maryland school systems re-
ported a late August shortage of
