This bulletin has been prepared by the U.S. Office of Education in order to meet the needs of admissions officers of colleges and of others charged with the selection of high-school students and graduates for various purposes. It is used by the Civil Service Commission, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, and in the past several years it has been used extensively by officials of the armed forces in connection with their training programs. The present bulletin is the tenth in the series, the first having been published in 1918. It is the plan of the Office to issue the complete list of accredited secondary schools every 4 or 5 years with one or more supplements in intervening years. An "accredited secondary school," as the term is used in this bulletin with reference to schools accredited by State agencies, generally has, among others, the following characteristics: Its students must earn 15 or 16 units for graduation; it has a school year of 180 or more days; the length of the recitation period is at least 40 minutes; it has a minimum of 3 teachers; and it provides adequate library and laboratory equipment. Topics addressed in this bulletin include: (1) Methods and agencies of accrediting; (2) Cooperative study of secondary school standards; (3) Standards of regional accrediting associations; (4) Requirements for admission to the college of liberal arts of State universities; (5) Requirements of State accrediting agencies; (6) Number of accredited secondary schools by State; (7) Arrangement of material in the bulletin; and (8) Accredited secondary schools by States and outlying parts of the United States. Individual sections contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
