Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This two-part bulletin updates growth and activities of the parent-teacher associations. Part I, History and Progress of the Parent-Teacher Movement (Margaretta Willis Reeve), points to the Congress of Mothers, founded in 1897, as adopting parent-teacher cooperation as part of its program; and describes its evolution, purpose, and activities as the National Congress of Parents and Teachers. Part II, Program Service, Trends, and Expenditures of Parent-Teacher Associations (Ellen C. Lombard), discusses three factors influencing the parent-teacher association movement and ways to determine the success or failure of a program. Individual sections describe topics of current interest: (1) increases in revenue and expenditures; (2) the establishment and growth of colored parent-teacher associations; (3) questions indirectly related to child life upon which the organization has passed resolutions; (4) scholarships and students' loan funds that may be used to enable student completion of elementary or high school, or college; and (5) efforts promoting interest within the home regarding the literature of child life and training.
