asked the President of the Board of Education how many uncertificated teachers and how many supplementary teachers are now employed in public elementary schools; and how does the percentage of these teachers compare with the figures for 1918?

I regret that the information required is not available, since under war conditions the collection of statistics has been reduced to a minimum. I have no evidence, however, to suggest that the percentage of uncertificated and supplementary teachers in relation to certificated teachers has materially increased.
