Los Angeles. California teachers
have started a movement for a year
of freedom from worry over school
routine. They will petition the state
legislature to declare a sabbatical
year in which teachers may recuper
ate from the distractions of long
service in the schoolroom.
Miss Blanche L. Vance, a Los An
geles teacher backing the plan, said:
"The average teacher can't stand
more than seven years straightaway
work without a rest. She should
stop, then, for a year, and get her
second wind. She isn't much good,
really, until she gets this, anyway."
