Periodically since 1890 the Office of Education has attempted to catch and keep a sort of survey picture of the developing secondary school curriculum. Each one shows the school's answer to the question of what is good--educationally--for boys and girls. Each one shows, too, through registration figures for electives, what boys and girls think is good for them--educationally. This bulletin now presents the latest study, based on 1934 data, of the secondary school curriculum. Sections cover: (1) Recurring studies of subject trends; (2) Number of subjects; (3) Trends in registrations, 1890 to 1934, including a guide to reading the data, and discussions of academic and nonacademic subjects: (4) Offerings and registrations in 1934, including a discussion of status and the subject areas of languages, mathematics, science, social science, health subjects, drawing and art, music, agriculture, home economics, commercial subjects, and industrial and shop subjects; and (5) An overview, or conclusion. (Contains 4 footnotes and 4 tables.) [Tables in this bulletin were prepared under the direction of Lester B. Herlihy. Best copy available has been provided.]
