For many years American students of education have studied more or less carefully the schools of Germany. From these studies they have brought back many valuable ideas which are gradually changing for the better courses of study and methods of teaching in American schools and to some slight extent their organization and management. Studies of American schools by German educators has been less frequent. The author of this bulletin, whose ideas and work as director of the schools of Munich are more or less familiar to all students of education in America, spent some time in the United States for the purpose of studying elementary and secondary schools. This bulletin gives some detail of the author's opinion of American schools of this grade. By comparing our schools with the German schools point for point, emphasis is given to their weakness and strength very effectively. (Contains 1 footnote.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
