The aim of this study is to present data concerning school-board organization, administration, and supervision in cities of more than 25,000 population. The data have been compiled from replies to questionnaires addressed to superintendents of schools and to secretaries of school boards. A sufficient number of replies have been received to make it possible to present data from the representative city schools of the country and to present summaries that show prevailing practice. The summary of each topic consists of two parts. In one part the prevailing practice is described generally with the aid of graphs; in the other the prevailing opinion of students of school administration is presented, as interpreted from textbooks on school administration, current educational magazines, and city school surveys. (Contains 8 tables and 4 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
