Contents include: (1) Purpose and scope; (2) General analysis of school organization and administration; (3) School population, enrollment and attendance; (4) Rural school organization; (5) School finances; (6) Physical education; (7) School grounds and buildings; (8) Preparation of teachers; (9) Certification of teachers; (10) Teachers' salaries, tenure, and retirement pensions; and (11) School textbooks.
