This bulletin provides the second chapter of the Biennial Survey of Education, 1930-32, which has been published in separate chapters dealing with a segment only of the educational system. The statistics presented in this report document city public schools for the school year 1931-32. The cities are divided into four population groups on the basis of the 1930 census: (1) 93 cities having a population of 100,000 or more; (2) 236 cities having a population of 30,000 to 99,999; (3) 672 cities with a population of 10,000 to 29,999; and (4) 2,157 cities with a population of 2,500 to 9,999. The 1930 census data for populations were not available at the time the tables were made for the statistics of city school systems, 1929-30; therefore, the present report is the first to be organized on the basis of city sizes as reported in the 1930 census. Gross figures for a group in 1931-32 are not exactly comparable with given figures for 1929-30. Therefore, comparisons with previous bienniums, especially those relating to expenditures, have been made on the basis of the number of pupils in average daily attendance. The text has been prepared to show changes in enrollments, average attendance, length of school term, pupil-teacher ratio, school facility and property investments, income, expenditures, per capita costs, etc. during the biennium 1931-32 to indicate significant trends and the variations that exist among the States. (Contains 2 footnotes, 40 tables, and 6 figures.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
