Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This report presents statistics of private and of public kindergartens for the school year 1921-22. In 1920 there were 7,835 kindergartens reported, with 10,739 teachers and 510,949 pupils. In 1922 there were 8,889 kindergartens reported, with 11,842 teachers and 555,830 pupils. This represents an increase over 1920 of 10.2 per cent for teachers, and 8.8 for pupils reported to the bureau. The greater part of this increase in pupils comes from an increase in the number of private kindergartens reporting. In 1920 there were 553 private kindergartens reported, with 29,683 pupils. In 1922 there were 1,193 such schools reported, with 55,023 pupils. The kindergartens included in this survey are those in the regular public schools of the various cities and towns and are supported by taxation and from other public funds and those in other than city public schools. They include kindergartens in parochial schools, private schools, settlement organizations, State normal schools, orphanages, Indian schools, and schools for the blind, deaf, and backward children. Of these private kindergartens, 744 employ teachers that meet State standards, 165 do not attempt to meet such standards, while 284 do not report regarding standards. (Contains 6 tables.)
