Statistics of State School Systems 1919-20. Bulletin, 1922, No. 29

The statistics presented herein were supplied by the various State offices of education for the school year 1919-20. Either a special report to the Bureau of Education was executed or the data used were taken from the printed State school report for that year. Unfortunately it was necessary to use figures for 1918-19 for Mississippi and Kentucky. Tables 46, 47, and 48 were taken from the reports of the United States Census Bureau for 1920. The figures in these tables are not comparable with the other data given in this report, since the census figures relate only to school attendance from September 1, 1919, to January 1,1920, and represent enrollment in both public and private schools. They contain no duplicate they enrollments. The statistics given relate in general to the public school system; including public kindergarten, elementary, and secondary schools. In no case have the statistics of higher educational institutions been included. The report includes the statistics of urban and rural schools combined. The public-school statistics include both white and colored pupils. In several tables statistics dealing only with colored schools are presented. Such statistics, however, are more or less incomplete, since many State offices of education do not make a complete separation of white and colored school statistics. The only statistics of private schools appearing herein relate to the enrollment in such schools. Wherever such data have been used their inclusion has been definitely indicated. The statistics of the outlying possessions of the United States hake been given in so far as they were reported, but they are not included in the totals for continental United States. (Advance sheets from the Biennial Survey of Education, 1918-1920. Contains 49 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
