Moore, Harry H.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
During late years an increasing number of leaders in high-school work have turned their attention to the development of the social studies. For the past five years there has been noticeable progress. In 1919 the Bureau of Education conducted a preliminary inquiry to discover the status, at that time, of the social studies in the curricula of the high schools of the United States; and in January, 1922, a more thorough inquiry was addressed to the 13,000 largest high schools of the country, including all the four-year high schools and some of the large two and three year schools. The important facts revealed by these reports are provided in this bulletin. They support the belief that encouraging progress has been made. Contents include: (1) General progress; (2) Civics; (3) Economics; (4) Sociology; (5) Miscellaneous courses; (6) Current events; and (7) Conclusion. (Contains 6 tables and 1 footnote.)
