Much has been written on the subject of supervision and the improvement of teaching. It is the general opinion of authors on this subject that it is a much better procedure to retain the services of competent teachers over long tenure than to follow any of the uneconomical plans of adapting large numbers of new teachers to the task of establishing the necessary teacher-pupil contacts for successful learning. But, of course, these authors do not suggest long tenure without active improvement of teachers while in service. Tenure laws are of such importance in some states as to take the form of statutory enactment, likewise minimum salary scales are provided. These factors and others of like nature together with the actual improvement of teachers in service are of prime importance to the teaching profession.
