Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This bulletin shows how inadequate are the salaries of county superintendents in most States, if persons properly qualified for the position are to be obtained. It provides tables showing the salaries of county and other rural superintendents and of city superintendents in the 48 States. The salaries are those paid in January, 1917. Those of the county superintendents in the 39 States with such officers, the division superintendents of Virginia, the deputy State superintendents of Nevada, the district superintendents of New York, and the union district superintendents of New England were furnished by the State departments of education, or, when fixed by statute, were obtained from the State school laws. The list is complete except for 25 county superintendents in Mississippi and 4 in Idaho, where the State departments of education were unable to give salaries for 122 probate judges serving ex officio as county superintendents in Texas, and for the rural superintendents in Connecticut. (Contains 6 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
