Private Commercial and Business Schools, 1917-18. Bulletin, 1919, No. 47

Throughout this bulletin it will be observed that no historical statistics are given for the school year 1916-17. After the statistical report for the scholastic year 1915-16 had been compiled the Bureau of Education adopted the plan of collecting statistical reports biennially instead of annually as had been done the preceding years. The changes in the totals of corresponding items for consecutive years are very slight, and for most purposes biennial statistics will suffice. In corresponding preceding reports certain statistics of commercial departments of public high schools have been included in the chapter on private commercial and business schools. This paper contains statistics of two types of schools hitherto tabulated together in alphabetical order: First, the purely private commercial and business schools not connected or affiliated with any religious organization and, second, the Y. M. C. A. commercial departments and schools conducted by religious organizations. Contents include: (1) Biennial statistics; (2) Schools included; (3) Classification of schools; (4) Graduates; (5) Number of schools reporting; (6) Size of schools; (7) Enrollment; (8) The moving average of index numbers; (9) Average attendance in day and night schools; (10) Enrollment by course of study; (11) Instructors; (12) Average number of students per instructor; (13) Length of daily session; (14) Tuition fees; and (15) Shorthand systems taught. (Contains 21 tables and 25 figures.) [Prepared in the Statistical Division of the Bureau of Education under the supervision of H. R. Bonner, Collector and Compiler of Statistics.
