Statistics of Private Commercial and Business Schools, 1924-1925. Bulletin, 1926, No. 14
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This bulletin contains the statistics of 739 private commercial and business schools for 1924-25, and of 20 public commercial and business high schools for the same year. There has been a considerable decrease since 1920, both in the number of private schools reporting and in the enrollment. At least 275 schools reporting in 1920 have gone out of business since that time. About 375 new schools sent in a report in 1925. With the decrease in total enrollments, the enrollments in bookkeeping, stenographic, combined bookkeeping and stenographic, accounting, wire telegraphic, and salesmanship courses have decreased, while there has been a 3% increase since 1920 in the number enrolled in secretarial courses. The reduction seen in enrollment in private commercial and business schools can be accounted for partly by an increase in enrollment in commercial courses in high schools. Statistical tables included in this bulletin contain the following data: (1) Table 1--Summary of statistics of all private commercial and business schools reporting, 1900 to 1925; (2) Table 2--Entrance requirements of private commercial and business schools, according to course of study; (3) Table 3--Distribution of private commercial schools according to number of months required for graduation, 1924-25; (4) Table 4--Instructors, students, and attendance in all private commercial and business schools reporting in 1924-25; (5) Table 5--Students in day and night courses and average daily attendance in all private commercial and business schools reporting in 1924-25; (6) Table 6--Day school enrollment, by course of study, in all private commercial and business schools reporting in 1924-25; (7) Table 7--Night school enrollment, by course of study, in all private commercial and business schools reporting in 1924-25; (8) Table 8--Total number of students pursuing certain subjects in private commercial and business schools in 1924-25; (9) Table 9--Statistics of private commercial and business schools which enrolled 100 or more students, 1924-25; (10) Table 10--Statistics of public commercial and business high schools reporting in 1924-25; and (11) Table 11--Number of students pursuing certain subjects in public commercial and business high schools in 1924-25.
