An answer as to how to meet teacher shortage in the trade and industrial field may possibly be found in this study. The study entails the State Statute requirements for trade teachers and the recruitment program for trade teachers in the state of Kansas at the present time. In an attempt to uncover some of the influencing factors that would affect the choice of a teaching career, such items as salary, credit unions, group insurance, prestige, leave of absence, retirement and tenure were covered. In the recommendation for a future recruitment program, most of the above items were covered. Several techniques for spreading the proposed program along with five sources from which prospective trade teachers may be drawn are also discussed.
