Abstract:

The Thomas R. Klipfel collection consists of an audiocassette and transcript of an oral history interview conducted during the winter of 1987. Klipfel began his career in education in 1960 as a teacher in southeastern Montana. He went on to become a school counselor and eventually the Dean of Students at Waterville-Elysian High School in Waterville, Minnesota. In the interview, Klipfel discussed the roles of administrators, teachers, school boards, the community, and students regarding changes in school discipline. He noted that the most substantial modifications occurred because of court rulings and changing family structures.

This oral history interview was conducted as a requirement for a course entitled Current Issues in Public Education at Mankato State University in Mankato, Minnesota.
