A Study of Junior High School Industrial Arts Teachers Participating in Summer Program for Bachelor's Degree Author: Fone-Ghuan Chu, Ta-Wei Lee


The purposes of this study were: (1) to find out the number of teachers who were interested in participating in the Summer Program for Bachelor's Degree (SPBD), and their characteristics; and (2) to explore the profile of industrial arts teachers currently teaching in junior high schools.
The major conclusions reached were:
1.About half of the high school industrial arts teachers were college graduates or below. Besides, more than 95% of these teachers had intention to participate in SPBD.
2.Most of those teachers who intended to participate in SPBD were 36 to 40 years old, and had 16 to 20 years of teaching experience. This fact showed that a lot of unqualified industrial arts teachers were recruited in 1968 when com-pulsory education was prolonged to nine years. Obviously, in order to assure the quality of education, it is necessary for us to keep upgrading their teaching competence.
3.After 25 years of teaching, many industrial arts teachers who started teaching in 1968 would like to retire voluntarily. It implies that we have to take this into account when we plan preservice industrial arts teacher training.
