School Census Compulsory Education Child Labor: State Laws and Regulations. Bulletin, 1945, No. 1

The school census, compulsory education, and child-labor regulations are subject to State control. Each State of the Union has enacted legislation concerning them. These many regulations and practices relating to child welfare services vary significantly among the States. Because of this fact no detailed composite picture can be presented for the United States as a whole. To obtain an account of the various practices existing in any one of these services requires a State-by-State study. This is too large a task for most individuals who need the information to undertake. In recognition of this fact the U.S. Office of Education, in keeping with its legal authorization to collect and diffuse information to promote the cause of education throughout the country, has prepared this handbook setting forth practices followed in each State relative to the school census, compulsory school attendance, and child labor, and furnishing some illustrative examples of them. This handbook will be a convenient source of information for persons concerned with the improvement of practices, the enactment of new legislation, and the administration of laws in these phases of education and the protection of youth from exploitation in employment. Individual sections contain footnotes. (Contains 3 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
