Recent Progress in Negro Education. Bulletin, 1919, No. 27
Jones, Thomas Jesse
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The past year has witnessed considerable progress in the field of Negro education, despite adverse conditions brought about by the war. Probably the most significant event of the year was the appointment in Texas of a State supervisor of rural Negro schools, whose salary and expenses are paid entirely by the State. Short terms, poor schoolhouses, and low salaries continue to hamper the works of the public schools, but the problem of Negro education has been called to the attention of the white South by the recent exodus of Negroes from that section, and some improvement has already been made. While there has been a considerable increase in the actual amounts appropriated by the Southern States for salaries of colored teachers, the Negroes still receive no greater proportion of the sums expended for teachers' salaries. The official reports of State superintendents of public instruction show that these officials are trying to increase the school facilities for Negroes and are calling the attention of the public to the matter. During the year, bulletins and leaflets dealing with various phases of Negro education have been published by State departments of education. Following an introductory statement, this bulletin covers the following topics: (1) State supervisors; (2) Jeanes industrial teachers; (3) County training schools; (4) Rosenwald schools; (5) Phelps-Stokes fund; (6) Public school facilities; (7) Recent publications; (8) Educational meetings; (9) Church boards; and (10) Private and denominational schools.
