Pearson, Jim B., Ed.; Fuller, Edgar, Ed.
The historical development to 1967 of the 50 state departments of education and the central school agencies of Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Panama Canal Zone, and the Virgin Islands is presented in this massive reference. Each chapter, dealing with a separate state or territory, was written independently; however, topics in common to most chapters include educational change or reform, early history, problems of the depression and postwar years as related to education, teacher certification, special educational programs, vovational education, educational finance, teacher education, school accreditation, pupil transportation, minority group education and problems, board structure and present status, future plans, and federal, state, and local interrelations. Each chapter is supplemented by a bibliography, a list of the chief school officers, and an organizational chart. (EDUCATION IN THE STATES: NATIONWIDE DEVELOPMENT SINCE 1900, SP 003 035, is a related document.) (SM)
