Just 60 years ago the State of Alabama made its first formal essay toward a State-supported and State-administered public-school system. During this period there have been many ups and downs of educational fortune, but there has been progress. This bulletin describes the main characteristics of the educational experience of Alabama over the last 60 years. This is the second in the series of brief histories of education in some of the States of the Union which the author has prepared for the bureau for the purpose of providing accurate information for the future historian, and the still more important purpose of helping those who are now working for the improvement of education in the States. An addendum, bibliography, and index are included. Individual sections contain footnotes. (Contains 5 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
