Recent Data on Consolidation of Schools and Transportation of Pupils. Bulletin, 1925, No. 22
Abel, James F.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
An average of 1,000 school consolidations were formed yearly; public money spent for pupil transportation increased about three and one-half million dollars annually; and the number of one-room schools in the United States decreased about 4,500 a year, during the period from 1918 to 1922. These are the rates at which three important movements in education are helping to bring about fewer and better schools. Detailed statistical data about these movements, the attitudes of schools officials toward them, some of the influences aiding or retarding them, and the results that are being accomplished are documented in this report. (Contains 1 figure, 1 table, and 7 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
