This brief study is based upon several weeks' observation of schools and mining towns in what are considered the best districts in the bituminous coal region of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Alabama, and upon some years' acquaintance with mining town schools. An attempt has been made to point out in a general way the type of school that should be maintained in every mining community. Topics covered include: (1) General background; (2) The schools as they are; (3) How the children employ their leisure time; (4) The schools as they should be; and (5) Examples of mining-town schools. (Contains 8 illustrations and 8 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
