At the request of the Honourable the Minister of
Education, a joint committee representing the Department of
Education and The University of British Columbia, was set up
to study the steps that might be taken to coordinate all
institutions with a view to the improvement of Teacher
Education in this province.  The personnel of the Committee
was as follows: f
Wednesday, December 15th, 1954 2124
For the University of British Columbia:  Dean G. C. Andrew,
Dean S.N.F. Chant, Dean W. H. Gage and Mr. C. B. Wood
For the Department of Education:  Mr. H. L. Campbell, Deputy
Minister; Mr. J.F.K. English, Assistant Deputy Minister;
Mr. F. P. Levirs, Chief Inspector; and Mr. F. H. Johnson,
Co-ordinator, Teacher Education.
The report of the Committee was presented to the
Minister and Acting President at a meeting at the University
on November 18th, and referred to the Board of Governors and
Senate for their consideration.  The report includes the
following recommendations:
"1.  In view of the urgent problem of supplying sufficient
teachers to meet the requirements of the elementary and
secondary schools and to give these teachers an academic
and professional education of a standard in keeping
with the important status of their work, this committee
recommends that there be a coordination of all existing
teacher training institutions - i.e. the Vancouver and
Victoria Normal Schools, the Summer School of Education
and the School of Education of the University, into a
faculty to be known as the College of Education.
"2. This faculty should operate as other faculties do,
except tliat there shall be constituted a Joint Board
of the College of Education consisting of (a) the
Chancellor of the University, the President of the
University, the Dean of the College of Education, or
their nominees, and one other member-at-large from
the Senate of the University, (b) the Deputy Minister
of Education, the Assistant Deputy Minister of
Education, the Co-ordinator of Teacher Education and
the Chief Inspector of Schools, or their nominees,
(c) the Principal of Victoria College or his nominee,
(d) a representative from the British Columbia
Teachers' Federation, and (e) a representative from
the B. C. School Trustees' Association.
The Joint Board of the College of Education should
be empowered to make recommendations to the Board of
Governors, the Senate and the President of the University,
as such may apply, and to the Minister of Education in
respect to the following:  The curriculum of the College
of Education, appointments to the staff of the College,
budgetary provisions for the College, capital expenditures for the College, and the same for any publicly
supported teacher training institution within the
Province in affiliation with the University of British
Columbia. Wednesday, December 15th, 1954 2125
"3.  To establish such a Joint Board this committee recommends
that legislation be introduced at the next session of the
legislature amending the British Columbia University Act,
section 86, along the lines suggested in Appendix A of
this report.
"4.  The Committee recommends that steps be taken to secure
the sanction of the Government, of the Greater Victoria
School Board, and of the Board of Governors of The
University of British Columbia to the taking over of
Victoria College from the School Board and operating it
through a Victoria College Council as a College
affiliated with the University of British Columbia and
offering courses for the academic and professional
education of teachers and others.  Victoria College
would be financed under a separate budget of the
Department of Education voted by the Legislature.  Such
budget would be submitted to and approved by the Board
of Governors of the University.
"5.  To sanction such action as recommended in 4. and the
expenditure of public funds on capital expenditures and
operation expenses of the new College of Education, the
committee recommends that legislation be introduced at
the next session of the Legislature amending sections
12 and 13 of the Public Schools Act along the lines
suggested in Appendix B of this report.
"6. Without prejudice to modification after further
discussion the Committee envisages a programme of
teacher training as outlined in Appendix C in which
(a) The basic certificate for elementary teaching
will be given at the conclusion of two academic years
work, although for the present it would be possible
to give interim certification at the end of the one
year course.  Each year would carry university credit
toward a four-year B.Ed, degree in elementary education.
(b) The basic certificate for high school teaching
would come at the end of a five-year basic programme
which would entail either a B.A. degree plus a one-year
teacher training course, as at present, or a combined
academic and professional course of five years which
when completed would entitle the student to both B.A.
and B.Ed, degrees,  (c)  Should an elementary teacher
with a B.Ed, degree wish to progress to high school
certification he could do so by taking an added year
of academic work.
"7.  The Committee recommends the erection of a new building
or buildings on the campus of the University of British
Columbia to house the new College of Education and the
expansion in the Faculty of Arts. On completion of these
buildings the Vancouver Normal School property should be
returned to the Government for disposal. Wednesday, December 15th, 1954 2126
"8.  If the general plan as proposed in this report be
approved by the Minister and the Board of Governors of
the University, the Committee recommends that the Joint
Board of the College of Education, or an interim joint
board, be constituted immediately, and that it be asked
to offer a recommendation for consideration by the
President and the Board of Governors as to a suitable
nominee for Dean of the College of Education as proposed
in 2. above.
"9.  The Committee recommends that the Dean be appointed as
of September, 1955, and that he be given the year prior
to September, 1956 to make the necessary plans for the
organization of a College of Education to open on the
latter date.
"10, The committee recommends that a token vote be incorporated
into the forthcoming budget of the Department to cover
necessary expenses in establishing and organizing the
College of Education,
"11, The committee respectfully requests the opportunity of
presenting this report formally at a meeting at which
it can be discussed personally with the Honourable the
Minister of Education and the President of the University."
It also includes suggested amendments to the
University Act (Section 86) and the Public Schools Act
(Sections 12 and 13) and a chart showing a possible
organization of Teacher Education.  Copies of the report had
been circulated to members of Senate in advance of this
meeting.
In the discussion, Dean Gage pointed out that, in
view of the necessity of amendments to the University and
Public Schools Acts, and of a new Act to re-constitute
Victoria College, it was most important that the governing
bodies of the University should have copies of the proposed
legislation for study well in advance of the Session of the
Legislature.
Miss Cottingham, Secretary Treasurer, B. C. Wednesday, December 15th, 1954 2121
Teachers' Federation, and representative of the Federation
on Senate, presented a memorandum on behalf of the Federation
