This bulletin represents an innovation in U. S. Office of Education procedures in the writing of publications, since it has been produced by the cooperative effort of 12 students at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, and their instructor in English. Because of the many requests from seventh- and eighth-grade rural school pupils for a brief history of education, it was thought desirable to have such a manuscript written simply rather than technically. "America Builds a School System", is the story of how schools came into being in these United States of America. A chronological table of significant events in American public education is appended. A bibliography is provided. (Contains 8 footnotes.) [This manuscript was edited by Berta Kernen, Louise Reitzel, and Wilma Leslie Garnett. Best copy available has been provided.]
