The primary purpose of this thesis is to make a comparative study of the status of the teachers of Sevier County with the teachers of Dickson, Hickman, Morgan and White Counties, the area, population, amount of taxable property, and number of teachers being approximately the same, in order to ascertain whether or not Sevier County is keeping pace with comparable counties in the character of teachers employed.
The development of children will, in very larger measure, depend upon the character of their teachers. Therefore, it is exceedingly important that frequent inventories be taken of the teaching corps in order to determine their status.
