Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The data presented in this report relate to schools supported by public funds, and include kindergartens, elementary grades, and high schools. Increases are noted in 1924 over 1920 both in numbers and in percentage enrollments. Although the general increase in enrollment in 1924 is about 4.3 per cent over that of 1922, seven States, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, and Montana, show losses during this two-year period. Fifteen States show losses in the elementary grades, but the increases in high-school enrollment more than make up the losses in eight States. The increase in percentage of enrollment in the high school is from 12.3 per cent in 1922 to 14 per cent in 1924. The number of teachers employed increased from 722,976 in 1922 to 761,308 in 1924. In 1922 there were 34.2 elementary pupils enrolled to each elementary teacher; in 1924 there were 33.9. The corresponding figures for high-school pupils enrolled per high-school teacher are 22.2 and 23.5. (Contains 35 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
