Abstract: The objectives of this study were: (1) to determine how currently employed, qualified speech therapists were recruited into North Carolina (N.C.) public schools, and (2) to determine the reasons why qualified speech correctionists leave N. C. public school therapy programs. The term "qualified" was operationally defined as: meeting state certification requirements for public school speech and hearing therapists. Two questionnaires were used to accomplish the objectives. Questionnaire I was mailed to 235 N.C. public school therapists employed during the school year, 1967-68. Questionnaire II was sent to 100 individuals who had left the N.C. public school speech therapy program since the 1964-65 school year. Questionnaire returns were 68.5% and 56.2%, respectively.
