Data for State-Wide Planning of Veterans' Education. Bulletin, 1945, No. 4

This bulletin provides information basic to a determination of the size, nature, and incidence of school and college enrollment that may be expected from individuals who have served in the armed forces during World War II. It does not undertake the more comprehensive task of estimating the total potential post-war educational enrollment. This would require studies of the educational status and intentions of young war workers, visiting foreign students, and age groups too young to have been in either the armed services or the labor forces. The study is limited to an analysis of two of the more important bases for estimating the number of servicemen likely to return to school and college--namely, age and previous schooling. Because the provision of education in the United States is primarily a State responsibility, the information is distributed by States. In the 17 States and the District of Columbia where legally separate schools for Negroes and whites are maintained, the data are tabulated separately for the two races. To facilitate comparisons, the States are grouped by census regions, each of which is preceded by a summation table showing the relative percentage standing of the States in a region. In order to supply rough norms and a basis for comparisons, these and other relevant data are also consolidated for the Nation as a whole. This bulletin is divided into two parts. Part I contains the data for State-wide planning of veterans' education, and Part II presents a background for interpreting the State data. (Contains 94 tables and 2 footnotes.)
