Review of Educational Legislation 1926-1928. Bulletin, 1929, No. 27
Keesecker, Ward W.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
During the biennium 1926-1928 approximately 1,200 educational acts of general application were passed in the continental United States. The outstanding general feature is the increased tendency to employ educational surveys and state-wide investigations as bases for educational legislation. In recent years legislatures and school officials have manifested increased interest in securing information concerning school conditions and problems as a basis for formulating legislative and administrative policies affecting the schools. Critical public opinion, demanding economy and efficiency, and the growing science of education have largely favored this tendency. The contents of this bulletin include: (1) Educational investigations and surveys; (2) Recodification of school laws; (3) State administration; (4) State school support; (5) County administration; (6) County superintendents; (7) Consolidation and transportation; (8) Secondary education; (9) Junior colleges; (10) Adult education; (11) Teachers' certificates; (12) Teachers' pensions; (13) Teachers' salaries; (14) Teacher tenure; (15) Physical welfare of school children; (16) Safety of school children; (17) Handicapped children; and (18) Private degree-conferring institutions.
