This manuscript is divided into two parts. The part dealing with administrative and supervisory personnel was prepared by Fred Engelhardt and William H. Zeigel, Jr. Part II on the aims and activities of supervisors was written by Roy O. Billett. Part I investigates the scheme of administration in a large number of secondary schools. In all 4,452 inquiry blanks were mailed out in order to get the information. Data were sought in every State of the Union from State superintendents, staff members of State departments of education, city superintendents, high-school principals, and staff members in city systems and individual secondary schools. The replies to these blanks came from 32 per cent to over 91 per cent of those concerned. It will be seen, therefore, that the report on this section is representative of the field. In the second part, 30 cities were selected for intensive study. The investigation revealed 72 activities classified as supervisory. Two hundred and eighty-four supervisors were consulted, their experience averaging 20.8 years. The training which they had received seemed to be entirely adequate, 4 per cent of them holding doctors' degrees, and 45 per cent holding masters' degrees. The report indicates the emphasis placed upon various supervisory activities and describes outstanding programs for supervision. Individual chapters contain footnotes. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
