Problems Involved in Standardizing State Normal Schools. Bulletin, 1916, No. 12
Judd, Charles Hubbard; Parker, Samuel Chester
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
Normal schools are not now standardized, varying widely in organization, admission requirements, courses of study, and modes of instruction; and have never been a part of the system of higher education in this country. This monograph merely outlines the problem of standardization of State normal schools, and aims to demonstrate the necessity of a broader investigation. The bulletin is restricted to a study of State normal schools, eliminating a consideration of the work of closely related institutions, such as city training schools, county normal schools, and teachers' training courses in high schools. Contents include: (1) Introduction: Scope of the bulletin; (2) Statistical comparison of colleges and normal schools; (3) Purpose, number, and geographical distribution of services of State normal schools; (4) The administrative control of State normal schools; (5) Practice-teaching facilities; (6) Students and graduates; (7) Faculties of State normal schools; (8) Normal-school costs; (9) General courses of study for high-school graduates; (10) The organization of practice teaching; (11) The training of rural teachers; (12) Training of high-school teachers and conferring of degrees; (13) The training of teachers of special subjects; and (14) Program for development of normal-school standards. (Contains 9 tables; 3 figures; and 15 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
