The purpose of this report on research in secondary education is to study: (1) the personnel of educational research bureaus; (2) the undertakings of research departments in city school systems and in individual secondary schools; (3) the research undertakings carried on by individual secondary-school staff members not officially connected with research bureaus or departments; and (4) the nature of the research conducted in secondary education within schools and school systems. Inquiry revealed that few bureaus of research have been organized in secondary schools and that nearly all research in secondary education carried on in school systems is conducted by the bureaus of research of city school systems. This necessitated the study of these bureaus, especially with respect to their activities at the secondary-school level. This bulletin is divided into six chapters, as follows: (1) The Problem and Methods of Investigation; (2) Bureaus of Educational Research and Secondary Education; (3) Functions of Bureaus of Research; (4) Research outside the Bureaus; (5) Classification and Analysis of Researches Made; and (6) Summary and Conclusions. (Contains 25 tables, 6 figures, and 38 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
