Old Alabama Stuff (4): Teacher Certification in 1922

This pamphlet of 16 pages was published in 1922 as Bulletin No. 32 of the State of Alabama Department of Education. The item describes the various types of certification and methods of receiving them for Alabama's public school teachers. 

Certificates could be received by graduating from an approved post-high school training program for teachers or by examination. Certificates valid in other states could be approved by the State Superintendent of Education. Special and emergency provisional certificates were also available.  

Details are also given for rules governing examiners, preparation of teachers in colleges and universities and "preparation of teachers in colored institutions."
