The problem of this study is to survey the professional status of teachers of the Central Elementary School, Jefferson, Marion County, Texas, and to propose a program for their professional improvement.

The development of a suggestive program for the improvement of the faculty personnel of the Central Elementary School will satisfy a need. Benefits will ac-cure, first of all, to fourteen classroom teachers and to the three hundred seventy-six Negro pupils. A program of professional development for classroom teachers should lend itself, first, to the advancement of the teaching profession. Teachers may be stimulated to become more critical, painstaking, and more conscious of the need of all children whom they teach.

Furthermore, the study is particularly significant for the investigator, because he has recently assumed professional responsibility at the same school in which he has been a classroom teacher in the elementary grades for ten years. His promotion to the principalship will serve as a stimulus and challenge him to carry on his newly assigned duties in an efficient manner.
