Curriculum construction and the building of courses of study are now recognized as essential processes in improving the work of the school. How to make programs of curriculum development and revision more effective, how to facilitate and coordinate the activities of curriculum committees, and how to utilize human endeavor, advantageously yet economically, are problems of fundamental importance in the administration of a well-organized school system. Attempts to meet these problems include the employment of directors and consultants who guide the various committees, and the establishment of curriculum laboratories where pertinent materials and information are readily available. This report presents the findings obtained from an inquiry addressed to State departments of education, institutions of higher education, and city school systems, for the purpose of identifying special divisions or departments whose principal function is curriculum making, and of determining how such departments are organized, what activities are carried on, and what resources are available for their use. (Contains 11 footnotes, 13 tables, and 4 figures.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
