Age and Grade Census of Schools and Colleges: A Study of Retardation and Elimination. Bulletin, 1911, No. 5. Whole Number 451
Strayer, George Drayton
United States Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The data which are brought together in this bulletin concern elementary schools, high schools, and colleges, and were collected by a special inquiry of the Bureau of Education in December, 1908. The data collected are significant primarily for the light which they throw upon the problems of retardation and elimination in schools. In two cases the facts presented are analyzed somewhat carefully, viz, the number of children over age and under age, and the relation of the number of children in each grade to the entering group. The tables and diagrams, which bring together these facts of retardation and elimination, will give some indication of the situation for the cities of the United States and will make possible a comparison among the several cities reporting. These data will not fully explain the situation, but they will furnish a form or standard with which any situation can be compared. Not the least value that these statistics will have is the possibility of comparison which they will make possible 5, 10, or even 20 or more years from the present time. (Contains 53 figures and 90 tables.) Individual sections contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
