Industrial Schools for Delinquents, 1921-22. Bulletin, 1924, No. 2
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This report contains statistics of industrial schools for delinquents for 1921-22. The institutions are all reformatory nature and receive inmates committed to their care by juvenile and other courts. Reports were received from 145 institutions: 30 of these are private institutions controlled by corporation or associations, and they admit children committed on public charges and therefore receive appropriations from the State. In 1900 the number schools reporting was 80. According to the records of this bureau, there are 176 public industrial schools for delinquents in the United States. The per cent reporting in 1922 is about 82 per cent of the total. During the year 1921-22, children committed to reformatory institutions numbered 31,240, and 31,250 were discharged. The average number of inmates for the year is 38,867 of whom 58 per cent enrolled in school classes. The bulletin concludes that one hundred and twenty-seven schools report 93 per cent of those discharged able to read and write. The children who have had all the benefits of these industrial schools for delinquents have still a much greater per cent of illiteracy than has the general population. (Contains 11 tables.)
