Bowie County, being in the line of thinking with others, progressive counties have instituted in-service training for its teachers. How much progress and how effective this training has been can only be determined be a criteria for measuring such professional training. In the light of such a criteria, the writer presents this study, The Evaluation of the In-Service Training of the Bowie County Negro Elementary Teachers.

Many of the progressive schools of the state have in-service training for the teachers. Some have made extensive progress as the result of the program. Three schools of the state have standing recognition because of the in-service training provided for the teachers, namely: Dallas, Austin and Port Arthur. These school systems were listed in Schools at Work in Forty-Eight States.3

This study is not concerned with the in-service training of teachers of other cities or counties of the state, but will include only the teachers employed by Bowie County Common and Independent School Districts. The Texarkana Independent School District is being emitted because of its independent supervisory program.

Comparison will be made of the Bowie County in-service training with modern in-service teachers' evaluations of other progressive localities.
