Inability to read well is regarded by many educators as a leading factor in the school dropout problem. Financed by a $40,000 grant from the U.S. Office of Education, the institute planned by the College of Education will provide special training for 30 secondary school teachers of reading. Each teacher accepted for the institute will receive a $75 weekly stipend. Dr. Wallace Z, Ramsey, professor of education and director of the institute, reports that only a small minority of Kentucky high school teachers have had even one course in the teaching of reading. In an effort to overcome this deficiency, the eight-week summer program will deal with materials, techniques and procedures which can be used in regular high school classes to improve students' ability to read their assignments effectively. Applications for admission to the institute may be directed to Dr. Ramsey at the College of Education, The deadline for application is April 15,
