In the 50's public concern about american education, the influence of sputnik I, and the national defense education act of 1958 brought about major educational results.

Recruitment and training were concentrated upon to secure more and better teachers. On-the-job training and 5-year college programs were emphasized. Several thousand teachers were drawn into the profession. The fund explored more efficient uses of teachers. Nonprofessionals were used to save teachers' time. Team teaching was fostered. Such technological innovations as television, tape, and teaching machines were sponsored, with television receiving the most attention. The fund undertook pilot studies and demonstrations to needy students at the college level, and of integration. Curriculum reform was studied.
