This report contains statistics concerning schools and classes for blind pupils for the year 1926-27. Reports are included for 80 schools and institutions. Data concerning sight-saving classes are not included where it is possible to separate them from data concerning classes for the blind. For schools that failed to report, statistics for a previous year, the latest available, are included. In States having separate departments for white and for colored blind pupils, their institutions are counted as two schools. Seventeen schools receive both blind and deaf pupils. Financial items are prorated in schools accepting both white and colored pupils in separate departments, and in schools accepting both blind and deaf pupils. Of the 80 institutions included in the report, 47 are State institutions, 21 are schools or classes in city school systems, 5 are private institutions, 5 others are private institutions supported partly or largely by State funds; 1 school is in the Philippine Islands and 1 school in Porto Rico. (Contains 3 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
