Biennial Survey of Education in the United States, 1928-1930. Bulletin, 1931, No. 20. Volume I. Chapter I: School Administration and Finance
Deffenbaugh, W. S.; Covert, Timon
Office of Education, United States Department of the Interior
This is the first time within recent years that a chapter on school administration and school finance has appeared in a biennial report of the Office of Education. In 1914, there was a published a chapter on Progress in Educational Administration and in 1923 a chapter on School Finance. Both the subjects of administration and finance have, however, been treated in numerous bulletins of the office and in various chapters on legislation and on city and rural schools that have appeared in the commissioner's biennial reports. Since no chapter devoted wholly to administration and finance has been prepared to show trends, this chapter instead of confining itself to happenings during the biennium, 1928-1930, attempts to show briefly for a number of years the trends in State and local school administration and in school finance. There being so many topics under the head of administration, and the amount of space allotted for this chapter being limited, only a few topics are included. Since certain phases of the organization and administration of elementary, secondary, and other types of school are treated in other chapters, that part of this chapter treating of administration is confined largely to State boards of education and to local units of school administration. Contents include: (1) School administration (W. S. Deffenbaugh); and (2) Public-school finance (Timon Covert). (Contains 19 tables and 14 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
