The Preparation of Teachers for Rural Schools


by Mabel Carney 1931

The term rural teachers as employed in this chapter relates to the teachers of farm-dwelling children. Included here are 153,300 teachers in one-room schools, 47,000 in two-teacher schools, and 100,000 in consolidated schools, making an approximate total of 300,000. These 300,000 rural teachers constituted nearly half of the 642,712 elementary teachers in the United States in 1928 and occupied 36 percent of the 831,934 total teaching positions recorded for the same year. Of the entire group, the 200,000 working in one- and two- teacher schools and responsible for the instruction of over five million country children will be held particularly in mind throughout this discussion.
