This manuscript in two parts is one of the larger ones of the National Survey of Secondary Education. Part I was prepared by A. K. Loomis and Edwin S. Lide. It deals with the program of studies in junior and senior high schools; the purpose, principally, is to trace the trends. For instance, the programs of studies in 60 junior high schools were studied for a 10-year period. The 14 programs investigated by the Commonwealth Fund in 1923 were also investigated in 1930-31. Certain trends revealed in recent revisions of the curriculum and the comparison of programs before and after junior high school reorganization were studied. A comparison was made of the programs of studies in reorganized and unreorganized schools. Similarly the programs of studies in 152 senior high schools were studied through a 6-year period, in 54 schools through a 16-year period, and in 35 schools over a 25-year period. The programs investigated by the Commonwealth Fund in 1924 were likewise brought up to date. The trends revealed through recent revisions and the trends in private school curriculums recently revised were also studied. In Part II of this manuscript B. Lamar Johnson gives attention to registration and schedule making. The importance of a pupil making a good start through a clean-cut registration each fall is emphasized, and the schedules adopted for the use of pupils and teachers together with the best time of opening and closing the school day are given attention. Individual chapters contains footnotes. (Part I contains 19 figures and 103 tables. Part II contains 37 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
