Summary

This study was undertaken to obtain evidence regarding the effectiveness of supervised correspondence study in high schools which could be used as a possible solution to the current shortage of teachers. Data were obtained by means of a questionnaire to students and principals concerning satisfactory methods of instruction, administrative problems and solutions, student viewpoints, and success of college correspondence courses taken on the high school level. The responses of both students and principals show that, if it were not for these correspondence studies, students in many instances would be denied the opportunity to pursue needed courses in many subject-matter areas. Achievement resulting from these courses is greater than from resident instruction. This method of instruction has greater potentiality for increasing flexibility of curriculum, and will make a substantial contribution to the high school program during the teacher shortage. Lack of administration, supervision, teacher interest, and closer liaison between the staffs of corresponding centers and local schools is the objection. More studies are recommemded. (gc)
