This report includes data on public and private normal schools. The normal schools have been classified chiefly on the basis of control. A city normal school is one under the control of the city board of education. The definition of a county normal school varies somewhat in the different States. Wisconsin has the only true county normal schools. They are separate from the regular public schools in control, school plant, and all other respects. Private schools are under private control. On this basis several schools formerly included under public normal schools have been included with the private schools for the purposes of this study. Topics covered in this paper include: (1) Types of schools represented; (2) Number of schools reporting; (3) Length of sessions; (4) Number of Instructors; (5) Number of students enrolled; (6) Graduates from normal courses; (7) Practice teaching and facilities for It; (8) Libraries; (9) Property; (10) Income; (11) Expenditures; (12) Accuracy; (13) Summer sessions in 1917; (14) Changes in the normal-school list; and (15) General summary. (Contains 17 figures, 49 tables, and 3 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
