The majority held that teach
ing has reached the status of a
profession when Pi Lambda
Theta, national education honor
ary for women, and Phi Delta
Kappa, men’s education honorary,
held a joint meeting and forum
The topic of the forum, “Teach
ing: A Profession—Not a Job,”
was introduced by Chairman
Hugh M. Shafer, assistant pro
fessor of education. In discussion,
Dr. Beatrice Aitchison, instructor
in economics, talked on “Security
and Continuity of Teachers in
Service”; W. L. Van Loan, prin
cipal of Roosevelt junior high
school, spoke of “Response vs.
Teaching Responsibilities”; Dr.
H. W. Bernard, assistant profes
sor of education, talked of “Sex
Discrimination in Teaching”; and
Miss Dorothy Sherman, instruc
tor in education, added “Teachers
Rights to Their Own Opinions.”
In conclusion it was decided
that teaching must contribute to
the enriched life in order to con
tinue as a profession. The educa
tors believe that the five-year
training plan will prove to help
the professional attitude because
four complete years will be de
voted to the professional type of
work by the student.
The meeting was opened by
President Stanley Williamson, in
structor in education, and at the
close was followed by a social
hour with refreshments.
