High School Education of the Farm Population in Selected States. Bulletin, 1925, No. 6
Windes, E. E.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This bulletin attempts to present: (1) the comparative extent to which farm and nonfarm groups are receiving public secondary education; and (2) the relation of significant factors concerning high schools and the farm population to participation in secondary education by farm children. The data here presented must be regarded as incomplete but significant. The fact that selected States rather than all States are used as a basis of study is justified because of the difficulty of the undertaking and because the study must be regarded as preliminary and serving to create a presumption. The six States presented (North Dakota, South Carolina, Montana, Oregon, Maine, New Hampshire) are representative of distinctive agricultural regions and of distinctive State secondary educational systems. (Contains 24 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
