Transcript 3k>"""" education of their children are below the national average in school expenditures per child. If some states put their whole general budget into the public schools alone—not a thing into legislatures, courts, police, or what not—they would still be far below the average for the nation.5 Even in the most prosperous states there are many educational problems and need for federal assistance. \ astly more important than adequate school buildings are the people who prepare our children with knowledge and teach them to think. The school teacher is the central figure in the education process. We entrust the minds and the character of our children to the teacher for many hours of the day. We look to the teacher to mold the children for the responsibilities of manhood and womanhood. Inevitably the character and influence of the teacher are woven into the character of the entire nation. Yet we are guilty of shocking neglect of our teachers. We have never given them the recognition, the appreciation, and the financial security they deserve. Poorly paid even before World War II, their situation is much worse today. Their earnings have not kept pace with earnings in general. Rising costs have forced thousands of teachers from the classrooms and they are still leaving. The drain is greatest among our best- trained teachers. Teachers with emergency certificates are becoming less the exception than the rule. Teacher-training colleges cannot even begin to meet the huge demands for teachers from the dwindling graduating classes, as young people abandon their teaching ambition to economic necessity. We need at least 125,000 new teachers each year. We are not getting nearly that many.6 COLLEGES IN DIFFICULTY, TOO All our colleges are having serious financial trouble, whether they are state institutions, land-grant colleges, large private universities, or small colleges. A New York Times survey shows that half our independent liberal arts institutions are operating in the red. The colleges are having serious difficulty in receiving funds from the sources which have supported them in the past, as estate and inheritance taxes nil longer make it possible for rich p* pie to give large support to such inst tutions." Present college enrollment is dow which means that tuition, so often " backbone of our higher institutions,? dwindling. At the same time, steadily rising t< tion and living costs are making it ' creasingly difficult for children of ' income families to obtain the benefits' a college education." There are ten million adults '"I United States who are functionally ill'1' ate—that is, who have completed ief than five years of schooling. I1"1 World War II, over 600,000 men » rejected for military service because1 functional illiteracy. Three hu thousand were rejected for the cause during the first year of the Koi"e' conflict. The end of segregation in schools H* colleges will create further educati0' problems. It will require, in most ca* the removal of a considerable nurt1'' of white children from schoolhol* which are well-equipped, convenietj located, and hygienically maintainel!
