Statistics of City School Systems, 1927-28. Bulletin, 1929, No. 34
Office of Education, United States Department of the Interior
This report contains statistics of city public-school systems for the school year ending in June 1928. Certain data are given in detail for all cities having a population of 10,000 and more and summary tables are included for all cities having a population of 2,500 and more. The United States Census Bureau classification of cities is used throughout, and city sizes are based upon the 1920 census. Group I contains 68 cities with a population of 100,000 and more in 1920; Group II contains 186 cities having a population between 30,000 and 100,000; and Group III contains 518 cities with a population between 10,000 and 30,000. Every city in these three groups made a report for 1928, although it was necessary in a few instances to supplement the report with data from a previous year. The supplementary data is indicated. The total regular day-school enrollment in cities increased from 11,714,231 in 1926 to 12,273,412 in 1928, or 4.8 per cent. The increase from 1922 to 1924 was 4.3 per cent. The number in average daily attendance increased from 9,694,279 in 1926 to 10,269,526 in 1928, or 5.9 per cent. It is not possible to tell how much of these increases in enrollment and in attendance are due to growth of cities, nor how much to improved school patronage. The number in average daily attendance in 1928 was 83.7 per cent of the number enrolled. In 1922 the attendance was 82.5 per cent of the enrollment; in 1924, 82.7 per cent; and in 1926, 82.8 per cent. (Contains 13 tables.) [Best copy has been made available.]
