In recent years it has become clear that one of the most valuable and direct services which the Bureau of Education can render to the several States is to respond to invitations to conduct educational surveys. Through the medium of these surveys, the State authorities are able to secure unprejudiced and sympathetic study of educational conditions, together with suggestions and recommendations for improvement. In accordance with this policy the Bureau of Education accepted an invitation from the State board of administration in Kansas to make a survey of the higher educational institutions under its control. The survey was carried out by a commission under the direction of Dr. George F. Zook, the bureau's' specialist in higher education. The following topics are covered in this bulletin: (1) General background; (2) The board of administration; (3) Admission of students at the higher institutions; (4) The functions of the university and of the agricultural college; (5) Teachers certificates and the preparation of teachers in Kansas; (6) The normal schools; (7) Correspondence and extension work; (8) Miscellaneous matters; (9) Financial support of the higher institutions; (10) The financial organization; (11) Recommendations; and (12) Report on the Medical School of the University of Kansas. An index is also included, and Statistical tables are appended. (Contains 21 tables; individual sections contain footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
