In an earlier publication of the Bureau of Education Bulletin, 1915, No. 47, "Digest of State Laws Relating to Public Education" an effort was made to summarize all State school laws of a general nature which were in force on January 1,1915. The purpose of the bulletin presented here is to supplement the bulletin of 1915 with a compilation of the enactments of 1915, 1916, and 1917 which relate to education The legislatures of 43 states were in session in 1915--all in fact except those of Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, and Virginia which meet in even numbered years. In 1916, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Virginia held sessions of their legislative bodies and a special session was held in California. All state legislatures which met in 1945 were again in session in 1917, except that of Alabama, whose lawmakers meet once in four years. The legislation of the years included in this compilation is presented in digest, following the style of the bulletin which it is designed to supplement. Is is intended to include all enactments excepting those of distinctly local character and excepting ordinary appropriations. The same method of presentation is used as in former publications of this character. The various items are classified under an outline which begins with general state administrative provisions and proceeds through the entire public school system. The enactments of the Legislatures of Alaska, Hawaii, the Philippines, and Puerto Rico are included. Also includes an index. [Best copy available has been provided.]
