Teachers College and Research

by James E. Russell - 1931

This article is reprinted from the Annual Report of the Dean of Teachers College for the academic years ending June 30, 1924 (pages 5 to 8) and June 30, 1921 (pages 7 and 8).—EDITOR. THE main purpose of Teachers College is to train for leadership in the profession of education. As one of the higher levels of vocational education, the professional school aims to fit its students for expert service in a particular field. But in addition to technical skill, which is the mainstay of the craftsman, the professional worker should have a broader and deeper knowledge, and his service should be directed by higher ideals. A professional school that has novices in training may be content to give that which will fit its students to begin where the average practitioner leaves off, but equipment for leadership must include the means of self-direction in anticipation of future needs.
