This bulletin contains abstracts of the addresses delivered at a two-day conference of State and county rural-school supervisors in the Southeastern States, called by the United States Commissioner of Education, at Peabody College for Teachers, Nashville, Tennessee, December 14 and 15, 1925. Abstracts were prepared from notes or manuscripts submitted by the authors. The conference was attended by approximately 100 rural educational workers, most of whom are engaged in State and county supervision. The States represented are Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. The United States Bureau of Education was represented by two members of the staff of the Division of Rural Education. The Program presented at the conference was arranged to consider the six large problems indicated by the Roman numerals in the table of contents: (I) The Supervision of Instruction; (II) Teaching Problems; (III) The Value of Supervisory Plans and Programs; (IV) Intelligent Use of the Textbook; (V) Problems Concerned with the Course of Study and Its Use; and (VI) Equitable Distribution of the Supervisor's Time. Under each of these at least one major paper or address was presented, followed by free discussion from the floor. Individual abstracts contain tables and footnotes.
