ABSTRACT  Four years after an NDEA institute in the Philippines, participating teachers were asked a series of questions about their experiences in the Philippines and the institute itself. In addition, they were asked for their subjective impressions of Americans and Filipinos. These impressions were compared to data which had been collected in 1968 immediately before and after the institute. Lastly, they answered questions concerning recent professional positions and experiences. The results of the followup study show that the teachers have many favorable memories of their stay in the Philippines. These feelings are quite different from the negative views expressed during and immediately after the institute. Opinions are also given about the value of many components of the institute and how these have affected present occupational status and orientation. Lastly, some of the problems that the teachers faced in adjusting to the Philippines are discussed.
