While American education is exclusively under the direction of the individual States, so that its organization and administration are determined by their school laws, the Federal Government has in certain limited ways concerned itself with education. Education for the home has specifically been aided: (a) by the Federal legislation which established the land grant colleges in 1862, and has since contributed to their development, for in certain of these institutions collegiate education for the home first took shape (see Part I); (b) by Federal grants for agricultural research, from which benefits have arisen for home education, especially through the scientific study of nutrition; (e) by the work of the United States Department of Agriculture in nutrition investigations; (d) by the services of the United States Bureau of Education, particularly in the newly organized Division of Home Education; and now (e) by the adoption of the Smith-Lever bill, which provides liberal Federal aid to State systems of extension teaching of agriculture and home economics (1914). Other legislation directly involving education for the home is now pending in Congress (pp. 179, 181). Contents of this bulletin include the following topics: (1) The States and Education for the Home; (2) The Rural School and Education for the Home; (3) The Elementary School and Education for the Home; (4) The High School and Education for the Home; (5) State Normal Schools and Education for the Home; (6) Technical Institutes and Special Institutions; and (7) The Agencies and Organizations Concerned with Home Betterment. An index is included. Individual sections contain footnotes. (Contains 20 tables and 10 plates.) [To access Part One of this 4 part series, "Education for the Home. Bulletin, 1914, No. 36.
