CIRCULAR RESPECTING NORMAL SCHOOLS,

AND THE PROFESSIONAL TRAINING OF TEACHERS.

U. S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION,

Washington, D. C., 1867. IMPRESSED with the paramount importance of the Teacher, in every instituon, and in all systems of instruction, public or private, the Commissioner of ducation desires to obtain the fullest and latest information respecting Normal chools, and all other institutions and agencies which exist in any State, for the reliminary training and subsequent professional improvement of teachers, specially of those connected with public schools.

The subject, as will be seen by the accompanying pages, (Classified Index, V. and XVI.,) has already received from him much attention, and he has a nass of documentary material which he proposes to make available for the fuller liscussion, all over the country, of the organization, studies, and methods of. the following institutions and agencies: L STATE NORMAL SCHOOLS.

Date and circumstances of their establishment-course of instruction, espe

cially in the principles of education and the art of teaching-conditions of admission and graduation—privileges of diploma-whole number of

students and graduates—cost, total and annual-results thus far. II. CITY TRAINING SCHOOLS, AND CLASSES.

The same class of facts, with particulars as to the methods of training

pupil-teachers in the management and instruction of classes and an

entire school. III. TEACHERS' INSTITUTES.

The special work of this agency—date of first introduction-annual State

appropriation in aid-number held, and attendance each year-system

of conducting, -and results. IV. TEACHERS' ASSOCIATIONS-STATE, COUNTY, AND CITY.

Date, and circumstances of establishment-frequency and length of meet

ings-subjects discussed-results. V. LEGAL EXAMINATION AND RECOGNITION OF TEACHERS.

The extent to which information has already been collected on each subject will be seen by reference to Classified Index, Chapters IV. and XVI. ; but statistics in all cases since 1864 are desired, and for 1867, are indispensable.

Any printed document, which has been instrumental in developing and making effective the idea of the professional training of teachers, and other information and suggestions respecting the above institutions, and other agencies and means specified in the accompanying article on the “Professional Training of Teachers," will be acceptable. Selections from these documents will be given with the sketch of the institution to which they refer.

The information, communicated in response to this Circular, so far as relates to State and City Normal Schools, carefully edited, will be published early in 1868.

HENRY BARNARD,

Commissioner.
