Foreign systems of education can often teach us the best thing to do. "How has the economic depression affected other countries?" is a question most likely to come to the minds of educators in this country at present. This bulletin attempts to answer this question. Originally it was in five chapters, devoting an entire chapter to the British Commonwealth of Nations. Here are found all kinds of methods of financing schools varying from no Federal funds in Australia to a complete national system in New Zealand. The other British nations vary between these systems. The countries of the continent of Europe which are affected in different ways are also briefly treated. Latin America and Asia and Africa which had two chapters of the manuscript now complete the second chapter. Altogether some 51 of the 67 nations are covered herein. Lack of money has made it necessary to condense this bulletin. This bulletin contains valuable information for the educators of this country. This bulletin contains these chapters: (1) A general survey; and (2) Brief statements for individual countries. (Contains 7 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
