Educators Oppose Professors
In Teacher Certificate Battle

!"}

By PAT ROELOFS
Reviving a battle between pro-
fessional 'educators, working to
increase the number of education'
hours required for holders of
teacher certificates, and profes-
sors in the liberal arts, who op-
pose the would-be requirement,
was this statement: "It is the feel-
ing of the Subcommittee on Re-
vision of the State Certification
Code that the prospective teacher
who demonstrates that his inter-
est is primarily in the acquisition
of knowledge in a particular sub-
iect matter field, cannot be cal-
culated to have an equally funda-
mental interest in the welfare of
children."
The statement appears in a re-
port issued recently by the sub-
committee as a defense for pro-
posed revision of the state certi-

fication code. Previously the sug-
gestions made by the group to the
State Board of Education, which
aimed at a 40 hour requirement in
education courses, was denounced
by non-education school instruct-
ors throughout the state.
BOMBARDMENTS of criticism
by college teachers who feel an
increase in general education re-
quirements would lead to a situ-
ation where students "wouldbe
learning how to teach everything
and knowing nothing to teach,"
followed the proposal.
Minor changes in the first re-
commendation by the subcom-
mittee have been made in the
proposals. In the original report
the group listed courses in -gen-
eral education from which
teacher certificate candidates
could chose to get the required
number of hours. The list has
been abolished and in its place
a section headed "inter-discipli-
nary requirement" has been
added.,
This requirement, according to
the report, "shall consist of:
coursesdor organized experiences
designed so that applicants can
gain better insights into democra-1
tic living, the components of cul-
ture, and the ramifications of
community living."
* * *
ANOTHER PROPOSAL by the
subcommittee is that 20 hours in
professional education courses
plus ten additional hours of di-
rected teaching should be requir-
ed.
Further increases in educa-
tion course requirements are re-
commended by the group: a
jump from 30 to 35 hours for
dual certificate candidates, and
an increase from 15 to 20 hours1
of education courses for the
conimunity college certificates.
The five man subcommittee, in
its report defending the proposed
increase, stated that preparation
"in a wide. number of areas" is
necessary, and went on to make
the observation that certificate
candidates' concentration on ac-
quisition of knowledge would sub-
tract from the "interest in the
welfare of children."

How College Students Can Get More Information
long before they graduate-and at no cost-
through this newly developed NAS career plan

Everybody who's anybody
works on: the EninStaf

x1

If you're like most college students,
you probably haven't made up your
mind what you're going to do after
graduation. There's no more reliable
source of advice than your own Col-
lege Placement Bureau.
To further clarify your thinking, to
help you decide where your particular
skills will find the greatest opportuni-
ties by comparing one field against
another, NAS has opened the way for
you to secure first hand information
from leading companies in the fields
that interest you most.
NAS can do this because, as adver-
tising representatives of more than
700 college newspapers, we are in
daily contact with many of the most
important and progressive companies
in America. These companies not
only constantly seek college-trained
men and women, but often plan far
ahead in competing with one another
for the most promising prospects.
So, you see, this new NAS career
plan is a service both to college stu-
dents and business leaders. Here's
how it works:
The coupon below indicates the
fields in which the greatest opportu-
nities exist today. You check those
that interest you as a possible career.
We'll do our best to see that your in-
quiry is referred to one or more of the

leading companies in those fields. Of
course, we can't guarantee a response.
We're merely volunteering our serv-
ices as a link between the campus
and the business world. But in many
cases you'll hear directly from lead-
ing companies in the fields you've
chosen.
Their information should first of
all give you a practical, down-to-earth
picture of what the industry itself
offers in the way of a career. Sec-
ondly, at the company level, it may in-
clude valuable facts and figures about
working conditions, pay, and chances
for promotion. Finally, filling in this
coupon may even lead to job offers
that would otherwise never have
come your way.
So act now. If you're a junior, or
even a sophomore, it's not too soon
to join the seniors in considering a
business career. The sooner you start,
the more information you collect, the
better your chances to find the right
job after college.
