Kindergarten Education. Bulletin, 1922, No. 40
Abbot, Julia Wade
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
There has been a material increase in the number of kindergartens and in the number of kindergarten children enrolled in the public schools during the year 1919-20 in spite of after-war conditions. During the war there was no increase in kindergartens throughout the United States. Since the war, increased school budgets, due to building programs and new salary schedules have tended to make school boards conservative about opening kindergartens, yet the latest statistics show an increase of 37, 811 children in kindergartens, and this increase is distributed over 31 states. This steady growth of kindergartens in small towns indicates that the kindergarten is being accepted as the right of every child in city and country instead of merely being regarded as a welfare agency for children living under abnormal conditions in large cities. The extension of kindergartens is due in no small measure to the earnest efforts of women's organizations. Contained in this bulletin are the following:(1) Increase in Kindergartens; (2) Kindergarten Legislation; (3) Kindergarten Training Schools; (4) The Nursery School; (5) Problems Relating to School Entrance and Retardation; (6) Recommendations in Surveys in Regard to the Kindergarten; and (7) The Kindergarten at the Pan-Pacific Educational Conference.
