Rural and Agricultural Education at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition. Bulletin, 1916, No. 2
Foght, H. W.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This bulletin was prepared to indicate recent progress in rural life and education as disclosed by the educational exhibits at the Panama-Pacific Exposition of 1915. The discussion includes (1) the general phases of progress in rural education, and (2) advancement in its more specific agricultural phases. Little attempt has been made to present the subject in a systematic way, either by kinds of schools or by school subjects, as the comparatively small number of organized State educational exhibits made such an arrangement impractical. In addition, the number of educational exhibits from foreign nations was limited due to the war or for other reasons. Contents include: (1) United States Government; (2) State educational exhibits; (3) Rural education in the territories and insular possessions; and (4) Public and private agencies. Bulletin 1916, No. 1, deals in a more general way with all the educational exhibits at the exposition. (Contains 82 figures and 3 footnotes.) [For Bulletin No. 1, see ED541765. Best copy available has been provided.]
