This bulletin presents a summary of the laws relating to education enacted by the following legislative sessions: 1910: Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Virginia; 1911: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming; 1912: Arizona, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Virginia. It is intended to include all enactments excepting those of distinctly local character and excepting ordinary appropriations. The method of presentation is self-explanatory. Important laws are quoted with considerable fullness and some of them are reprinted verbatim. As a rule legal verbiage and details of temporary or local significance are omitted when they do not seem to be necessary to a clear understanding of an act. In many instances essential paragraphs are reproduced without change, while other paragraphs of the same act are presented only in substance. Such treatment is required by obvious limitations of space. The reader will not, therefore, suppose that he is handling the full text of any law, unless quotation marks are used. Digests of judicial decisions are indicated by asterisks. They cover the period between October 1, 1909, and July 1, 1912. Practically all the digests were taken from the publications of the West Publishing Co., and the courtesy of that company in permitting the use of copyrighted material is cordially acknowledged. A bibliography and an index are included. (Contains 9 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
