Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate the professional preparation of teachers of health in selected Oregon high schools. The accomplishment of this problem was dependent upon (1) determining the standards or content areas for professional education of all high school health teachers and (2) determining the present professional education preparation status of Oregon high school teachers of health. The standards of preparation for all health teachers were established from the writings of professional health education authorities. The present educational preparation status of Oregon high school teachers of health was determined by a survey of the teachers involved, with the teachers indicating their feelings of adequacy or inadequacy about their preparation in regard to the standards of preparation of all health teachers. The academic files of the teachers were also analyzed; then a comparison of actual preparation and the teachers' feelings about their preparation was made. The data thus collected were submitted to summations and means, correlations, and t-Test of Significance. From these statistical evaluations, the results and conclusions were drawn. It was determined from this study that Oregon teachers of health were not as well prepared as they thought they were, and not as well prepared as they should have been. Teachers that have been prepared as physical education teachers are doing most of the teaching for health in Oregon high schools. Their preparation for the purpose of teaching health education has been very little. The younger teachers seem to be better prepared than older teachers. The teachers who received their preparation from an institution of higher learning in the State of Oregon were better prepared than those who received their training outside the State of Oregon.
