Professional Staff of State Departments of Education. Bulletin, 1925, No. 17
Ferguson, Arthur Wesley
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The chief factors in State administration of public education are the State board, the State superintendent, and the professional staff of the State departments of education. Several valuable studies have been made of the State board and the State superintendent. It is the purpose of the present study to supplement these with an investigation of the professional staff of State education departments. The term "professional staff" as employed throughout the ensuing discussion refers to those members of a State education department engaged in a type of service requiring professional knowledge, training, and experience for its proper execution. The study is confined to the professional staff of education departments in five States: Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, with the exception of Chapter II which makes a survey of the development of State departments of education in the country at large since 1900. A bibliography is included. (Contains 31 tables; individual sections contain footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
