Reorganizing a County System of Rural Schools: Report of a Study of the Schools of San Mateo County, California. Bulletin, 1916, No. 16
Williams, J. Harold
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The purpose of this study was to: (1) make a careful survey of the county, touching upon its geological, geographical, social, and economic features; (2) survey the system of schools now provided by the many districts in the county; and (3) propose a system of public schools to meet more adequately the needs of the people of this larger community. Material has been gathered by a personal visit to every town and nearly every school in the county; by talks with teachers, pupils, parents, business men, and county officials, as well as by written records. Question blanks were presented to each of the rural schools, and were filled out by the pupils in the presence of the investigator. Blanks were also sent to many of the teachers and parents in various districts. Other information was furnished at the county offices, at Redwood City. (Contains 15 charts and 3 footnotes.)
