Biennial Survey of Education 1924-1926. Bulletin, 1928, No. 25
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
Activities in higher education during the biennium 1924-1926 do not seem to have been inspired merely by the desire to pacify criticism of details or to patch up weak spots in the educational fabric. The tendency was to "raise the previous question concerning the functions of colleges and universities and to modify procedures to serve more perfectly the purposes accepted as basic. This survey of higher education during the two years is an attempt to present briefly some of the events of action and of discussion which have promoted or obstructed the tendencies to restate higher educational objectives and to reconstitute college and university organization and procedures. Chapters include (1) Higher education (Arthur J. Klein); (2) Medical education (N. P. Colwell); (3) Recent movements in city school systems (W. S. Deffenbaugh); (4) Progress of rural education (Katherine M. Cook); (5) Trends in the development of secondary education (Eustace E. Windes); (6) School hygiene and physical education (James F. Rogers); (7) Industrial education (Maris M. Proffitt); (8) Achievements in home economics education (Emeline S. Whitcomb); (9) Commercial education (J. O. Malott); (10) Public education of adults (L. R. Alderman); (11) Nursery-kindergarten-primary education (Mary Dabney Davis); (12) Preparation of teachers (William McK. Robinson); (13) Educational surveys (Arthur J. Klein, Walter S. Deffenbaugh, Timon Covert, and Edith A. Lathrop); (14) The parent-teacher associations (Margaretta W. Reeve and Ellen C. Lombard); (15) Educational boards and foundations (Henry R. Evans); (16) Work of the Bureau of Education for the natives of Alaska (William Hamilton); (17) Major trends of education in other countries (James F. Abel); (18) Statistical survey of education, 1925-26 (Frank M. Phillips); (19) Statistics of State school systems, 1925-26; (20) Statistics of city school systems, 1925-26; (21) Statistics of universities, colleges, and professional schools, 1925-26; (22) Statistics of teachers' colleges and normal schools, 1925-26 (Frank M.
