The object of this bulletin is threefold: (1) to provide those charged with the administration of public schools in the largest cities of the United States the means of making exact comparisons of cost between any two or more cities, with a minimum of effort; (2) to establish certain standards by which any item of expense of any city of 30,000 population or over may be measured and by means of which comparisons of expenses of this and future years may be made; and (3) to present certain conclusions regarding urban education which a study of the statistics seems to establish. Following a letter of transmittal, the following contents are included: (1) Classification of tables; (2) General method of treatment; (3) Basal tables; (4) Percentages of total school expenses; (5) Method of using the percentage tables; (6) Comparison of percentages of expenses between groups of cities; (7) The average costs per pupil for certain principle items of expense; (8) Method of using the average-cost tables; (9) Total school expenses as compared with population, etc.; and (9) Average cost per pupil of elementary and secondary schools.
