Marked progress has been made in the field of kindergarten education during the period from 1922 to 1924. This is shown in the: (1) continued increase in the enrollment in the kindergartens of the country; and (2) the better adjustment of the kindergarten to the school as a whole, including the new educational aims--the basis for unification, kindergarten-primary supervision--a means to more effective unification, problems that need solution, problems of classification and promotion, and unification of the kindergarten and primary curriculum; the improvement in the training of kindergarten teachers, including lengthening the kindergarten training courses, graduate courses for kindergarten teachers, and kindergarten-primary courses--a step forward; and the marked increase in the output of literature bearing on the subject. This document also reports the progress in kindergarten legislation, with two more states enacting kindergarten laws; and new lines of effort, such as kindergartens in consolidated rural schools and the nursery-school movement.
