During the period 1918 to 1926 the total population of the United States increased somewhat less than 15,000,000, not quite a 14 per cent growth, according to estimates of the Bureau of the Census. During this same time the number of high schools increased 5,400, a 33 per cent increase. The teaching force in these schools practically doubled. The number of pupils, too, came within a hundred thousand of doubling during the 8-year period. Costs increased more than 300 per cent. This bulletin discusses the following topics as they relate to secondary education: (1) Growth in public high schools; (2) The reorganization movement; (3) The Junior College; (4) The curriculum; (5) Articulation between educational units; and (6) Research and secondary education. (Contains 39 footnotes and 4 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
