Nursery-Kindergarten-Primary Education in 1924-1926. Bulletin, 1927, No. 28
Davis, Mary Dabney
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This is the first report since the 1925 reorganization of the Bureau of Education's section of kindergarten education in the city schools division into a section of nursery-kindergarten-primary education, in keeping with the general movement to unify the work for all ages of young children. Data have been assembled to offer facts concerning present practices in nursery-school, kindergarten, and primary education to provide bases from which future progress may be reckoned, as well as to show the need for more complete and accurate information in many lines of educational work with children of these younger ages. Both specific and general problems are waiting for solution. This report is presented in these sections: (1) Introduction; (2) Nursery school education (programs and staffs, workers' conference, education of parents as part of the nursery-school program); (3) Kindergarten-primary grades (increase in number of kindergartens, legislation to aid kindergarten education, curriculum construction and revision, "setting" for new types of curricula, report cards, promotions of kindergarten and first-grade children, teachers' salaries, training for teachers of kindergarten-primary grades, certification for kindergarten-primary teachers, general supervision for kindergarten and primary grades, teachers' professional organizations); and (4) Summary. Some portions include lists of some recent publications in the field. (Contains 9 tables, and 10 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
