The Teaching Profession.

THE NEED FOR MALE TEACHERS.

MORE REMUNERATION.

It was reported by the Appointments Committee at; the North Canterbury Education Board's meeting yesterday, that both the Board and the School Committees had been advertising 1 lately for male pupil teachers, for the' Lyttelton West and New Brighton schools, but there had been no response, and the Board should agree to sanction the appointment of female candidates, Mr Buddo said that he. did not know whrtt steps the Board should take to remedy tlie present state of affairs. It had made atringeat regulations in regard to every fourth position having to be a male appointment. The result had been that the effect of many advertisements calling for applications had been nullified. He could not say whether or not the Board was in a position to recommend that more emolument should be given to male teachers. The report was adopted. The subject was dealt with in a series of resolutions received from the Otago Board, and Mr Buddo moved that one of them should be adopted, as follows:— " That adequate encouragement Bhould be given to induce our most capable youths to enter and remain in the teaching profession." He said that at present men could not be attracted into the service. If that tendency continued, the teaching profession would be left to the women. There was a necessity for having male teachers, and greater inducements should be given to male pupil-teachers, in the way of emoluments. Mr Kennie seconded the motion. He said that this year the Board had a larger number of boys in the service than bafore. He thought that the position would right itself, especially if the remuneration was increased,, The chairman said that though there had been an increase in salaries lately, there had also been an increase in the cost of living. The motion was carried.
