Survey of Education in Utah. Bulletin, 1926, No. 18
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
Herein is the report of a study of public education in the State of Utah. The study was made under the direction of Commissioner J. J. Tigert at the request of the State board of education. Seventeen persons made up the survey staff, in the composition of which specialists of the Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior, were assisted by eminent authorities in education selected from widely different sections of the country. This enabled them to bring to bear on the problems the best possible judgment and experience. The staff members spent approximately 500 days in field work in the State of Utah studying general and educational conditions. The findings in this report are based on first-hand study and observation and on the interpretation of a vast amount of data collected by the staff, with the cooperation of school officials in Utah. The report was prepared only after extensive conference and discussion by the staff as a whole. It represents the consensus of opinion on the larger problems considered. While the report is made particularly for the people of Utah and applies primarily to conditions in that State, the principles on which conclusions and recommendations are based are general in their application and will be suggestive or adaptable to other States contemplating changes in their educational systems. This bulletin is divided into 11 chapters, as follows: (1) Social and economic background; (2) Utah's State school system; (3) School term, enrollment, attendance, and progress of children through school; (4) Elementary education; (5) Secondary education; (6) Local supervision--its improvement through a state-wide supervisory program; (7) Higher education; (8) Elementary school teachers; (9) Adult education; (10) A building program for Utah schools; and (11) Financing the elementary and high schools. An index is also provided, and individual chapters contain footnotes. (Contains 50 tables and 39 figures.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
