We have been made aware of the states low ranking nationally in such areas as teacher sa?aries, school con, struction, total student expendit- ures, district reorganization, and ~hortcomings in other educational areas. The strengths of our state system are often overlooked or not mentioned. Did you know, for example, that Oklahoma has achieved more by far in the past 14 years in im- proving the scholastic qualificat- ions- of its teachers than ,any other state in the nation? homa State university, , In fact in 1960~1, Oklahoma ' ' ] topped all states for the third Rev. John Richards, .pastor of I consecutive year in the qualificat- the church, gave the Benediction./ ions of its teachers. Of the 21,983 I active teachers in Oklahoma, There were seventy-two present 21,915 or 99.7 percent of them had for the banquet. The Courthouse Cafe in Chand- ler was the scene of the Valentine dinner of Theta Chapter Alpha: Delta Kappa at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 12. Guests were the husbands of the members. PreSent were: Mr and Mrs Brix- ey, Mr and Mrs T.J. Hampton, Mr and Mrs Dan Scheer, Mr and Mrs at least a Bachelors Degree. This is the highest percentage in the nation and places Oklahoma first among all states in the qualificat- ions of teaching personnel. The fact that 36.4 percent of the Okl~.- homa teachers have Masters De- grees or better adds further glitter to this record, Here in Perkins 11 or our 21 teachers bold Masters Degrees which is 52 per- cent of the total staff. 5 From Perkins On Honor Roll Five Oklahoma State university students from Perk;ns are among 1,887 who Pave been named to the OSU Dean's Honor Roll for the past semester.
