The problem of inadequate numbers of high school physics teachers and the poor preparation of many of those who do teach physics is one of the most serious problems which faces our profession. The CCP has activated a panel (the Panel on the Preparation of Physics Teachers) to give full-time attention to this problem and to recommend courses of action to the Commission. The following is a report by CCP Staff Physicist Ben A. Green, Jr., on leave from Western Reserve University, who recently visited several institutions which have been unusually successful in producing high school teachers of physics.
