Abstract: This problem grew out of an actual situation in a small, independent liberal arts college which was dependent upon the cooperation of the public schools for the training of student teachers in home economics. Upon investigating the relationship between the college and the cooperating public schools, the writer found unsympathetic and uncooperative attitudes existing between the college and the public schools involved. The principal in one school stated quite flatly that he preferred not taking any more student teachers. Another school administrator felt that student teaching took too much of the supervising teachers' time. The teachers in the public schools who were serving as supervising teachers thought that too much was expected of them. Student teachers themselves expressed dissatisfaction with the college plan for student teaching. At this stage of the investigation the problem emerged. The writer knew that a satisfactory student-teaching program could not be developed before bringing about a better relationship between the college and the public schools.
