President Pusey told a panel of reporters last night that the United States undervalued the role of the teacher.
Interviewed on NBC-TV's 'Meet the Press," Pusey said that the University was launching its fund drive to "meet basic needs," foremost among which were faculty salaries. He added that the financial position of the Harvard faculty was worse now than in 1933.
An abundance of good teachers was vital to maintaining a high level of American science, Pusey asserted. He denied, however, that American science was "lagging behind" that of Russia. Development of a satellite before the U.S. was ready with one was due to a "crash," high-priority program in Russia, he said.
When asked why Harvard did not double its tuition in order to meet its financial problems--instead of starting a Program for the College--Pusey replied that "If a lot of other universities would do it, maybe we would, too. But if the tuition were $2000, many of the students whom we want would choose Yale or Princeton."
