Summary

This special issue of "Council-Grams," the newsletter of the National Council of Teachers of English, reports responses to a September, 1972, questionnaire about the teaching of English sent to teachers and administrators of English and education in secondary schools, colleges, and universities. The questions included the following: What reductions or additions have been made in your budget for English, and with what consequences? Have positions responsible for the planning and supervision of curriculum been eliminated or added? Has the position of the department chairman been strengthened or weakened? Has class load increased or decreased at any level and to what extent? What innovative programs have been inaugurated or eliminated and why? What problems, if any, have arisen from attempts to integrate the schools and do these problems affect the performance of English teachers? What kind of year do English teachers anticipate? The author concludes that present conditions for teaching English are, on the whole, unsatisfactory and that the NCTE needs to carefully establish priorities for moving the profession from what it is to what it should be.
