Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This bulletin contains abstracts of addresses delivered at a 2-day conference of State and county rural-school supervisors of the Northeastern States, called by the United States Commissioner of Education in New York City, New York, April 23 and 24, 1928. Abstracts were prepared from manuscripts submitted by the authors. The conference was the third regional supervisory conference sponsored by the United States Bureau of Education. Reports of preceding conferences held in 1925 and 1926, were published as Bulletins, 1926, No. 12, and 1927, No. 24 of the Bureau of Education. The conference was attended by more than 100 rural education workers, most of whom are engaged in State and local supervision. The States represented were Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The conference was formally opened by the Commissioner of Education, Dr. John J. Tigert. He explained briefly his interest and that of the Bureau of Education in assisting the extension of rural-school supervision and promoting more efficient supervisory procedures. The program presented was arranged to consider seven large problems: (1) Improvement of supervisory techniques; (2) The effect of larger rural schools on the solution of supervisory problems; (3) Development of a supervisory program leading to closer integration between the work of those responsible for pre-service and those responsible for in-service preparation of teachers; (4) Types of supervisory assistance most effective in meeting the needs of certain teaching and pupil groups; (5) Contributions of State departments of public instruction to the education of mentally handicapped children in rural communities; (6) Equalizing educational opportunity for exceptional children in rural schools; and (7) Achievements and plans of the northeastern supervisory conference. Under each of these at least one major paper or address was presented, followed by free discussion from the floor. (Individual abstracts contain footnotes.)
