This bulletin provides the sixth chapter of the Biennial Survey of Education, 1930-32, which has been published in separate chapters dealing with specific segments of the educational system. This document explores the impact of the economic depression on the education of exceptional children. Special day schools and classes for exceptional children are thus far holding their own and in some aspects even making significant progress. Curtailments have been made in a number of cities, but so also have additions been made in other cities, while the large majority of school systems are holding their programs steady. The situation as it has developed within the past 2 years in various phases of special education is more specifically described in this report under three main topics: (1) general considerations; (2) city day schools and classes; and (3) residential schools. Under the first of these, some of the significant developments in the field will be pointed out. The two remaining sections present statistical data, with brief discussion of the same. (Contains 20 footnotes, and 17 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
