Biennial Survey of Education in the United States, 1928-1930. Bulletin, 1931, No. 20. Volume I. Chapter XXIII: Review of Educational Legislation, 1929-1930
Office of Education, United States Department of the Interior
The legislature of every American Commonwealth, except Alabama, was in regular session during the years 1929 and 1930 here reviewed. A large mass of educational legislation was enacted. The enactments represent the latest types of legislation on the subjects with which they generally deal. Distinctly new educational movements are not conspicuous among them. Recent educational legislation undertakes principally the improvement of older laws and proceedings along lines already well defined. With respect to this type of legislation it may be said that so long as public-school conditions remain below widely approved standards, many of them still are, so long as school administration becomes more complex, and so long as educational standards advance, better and additional laws will be necessary. Among the present needs are more school funds, improved school buildings, efficiency in school business, and properly trained teachers. Until these things are accomplished the proposition that there is too much educational legislation will be untenable. The following topics relating to educational legislation are discussed herein: (1) Educational investigations and surveys; (2) Recodification of school laws; (3) State departments; (4) State school support; (5) County responsibility; (6) County superintendent; (7) Local school organization and support; (8) Teacher training and certification; (9) The curriculum; (10) Teachers pensions; (11) School attendance; (12) Pupil transportation and tuiti0n; (13) Higher education; and (14) Education of exceptional children.
