This study is designed to provide data on the training and preparation of Negro teachers in the elementary schools of Brazoria County, and the extent to which classroom activities are meeting the need and interest of the in-school students. This involves four minor problems: 1. to show the kinds of certificates held by elementary teachers; 2. to show the professional preparation of teachers; 3. to show the teaching procedures common to most teachers in the county; 4. to show certain changes taking place in the curriculums.
The investigator is of the belief that much has been done by local boards to provide for the education of Negro youths in Brazoria County. Within the last few years much improvement has been made along lines of library, playground facilities, buildings and buying instructional materials for this group. Today more Negro schools in Brazoria County have been accredited than any county in the State.1 The above facts represent efforts to provide better education for Negroes in the county.
The challenge has arisen in the mind of the investigator to learn what Negro teachers in Brazoria County are doing for themselves to improve classroom activities.
