National Survey of Secondary Education. Bulletin, 1932, No. 17. Monograph No. 27: Intramural and Interscholastic Athletics
Brammel, P. Roy
Office of Education, United States Department of the Interior
The purpose of this investigation is twofold: First, the portrayal of the present situation in numerous phases of secondary-school athletics; and second, the presentation of suggestive materials gleaned from an intensive study of schools having especially promising practices in the phases studied. Stated more specifically, a few of the purposes of the study which will indicate also some of the phases investigated, are as follows: (1) To discover and study noteworthy plans for the administration and supervision of secondary-school athletics; and (2) to study intensively especially promising methods for the financial control of secondary-school athletics; (3) to make special studies of secondary schools in which intra-mural and interscholastic athletics are phases of the program of physical education; and (4) to study practices in secondary schools where certain problems relative to athletics appear to be dealt with successfully. It was impossible under the limitations of the National Survey of Secondary Education, and it was not the intention of the survey staff, to make a comprehensive study of the present status of athletics in secondary schools. As will be pointed out later, the schools included in this investigation do not represent a random sampling of secondary schools for the United States. Rather, in practically all cases, schools were included for study because they had been cited as doing outstanding work in the field of athletics. (Contains 32 tables and 1 footnote.)
