Summary

The responses of 19 members of the National Council of Teachers of English (classroom teachers, secondary school department chairmen, curriculum directors, supervisors of English, members of college departments of English, and English specialists with state departments of education) to a letter requesting them to describe the kind of year they anticipated for teachers of English in their areas are reported. Several of the 19 (out of 37) respondents sent out additional copies or variations of the questionnaire to teachers or supervisors in their areas. The questions included (1) What reductions or additions have been made in your budget for English and with what consequences? (2) Has your school or district eliminated or added positions having to do with planning of curriculum and supervision in English? Have the responsibilities changed for those still holding such positions? (3) Has the position of the department chairman been strengthened or weakened? How? (4) Has the class load increased or decreased at any level, and to what extent? (5) What innovative programs have been inaugurated or eliminated? Why? (6) What problems, if any, have arisen as a consequence of attempts to integrate the schools, and how do these problems affect the performance of teachers of English? (HOD)
