This bulletin, entitled "State School Systems: Legislation and Judicial Decisions relating to Public Education, October 1, 1904 to October 1, 1906," was prepared by Professor Edward C. Elliot, of the University of Wisconsin. It is intended to serve a special purpose. The legislatures of forty states will convene on or soon after the 1st day of January, 1907. In the most of these states bills will undoubtedly be introduced looking to improvements in the several state systems of education. It frequently happens that the framers and promoters of such bills and members of the legislature who are called to vote upon them, are desirous of acquainting themselves with precedents set in the recent school legislation of other states and may in fact derive many valuable suggestions from such legislation. It is hoped that the publication here offered will in large measure meet this need and will accordingly prove directly serviceable in the spread of improvements in the educational systems. While serving this special and immediate purpose it is hoped that it may prove useful in various other ways. A digest of the school laws of the several states was published by the Bureau of Education as Chapter IV of the Report of the Commissioner of Education for 1904. Professor Elliott's report brings that publication down to the present date, with a carefully compiled and classified list of all of the recent educational enactments. Indexes of subjects and States are included. [Best copy available has been provided.]
