This review of elementary education is planned for those who for a brief time would like to dissociate themselves from the ongoing program, to stand aside and view it analytically, particularly in some of its quantitative elements. There are three major sections; First, a brief statement of some outstanding characteristics of elementary education today; next, an analysis of some of the major problems which elementary schools face; and last, answers to more than 60 often-asked questions of statistical fact about elementary education. It is hoped that the material thus presented will be of assistance to the many persons who are interested in the elementary schools--in the children they serve, in the teachers, in the kinds of changes taking place in the school program. An index is included. (Contains 2 footnotes.) [Illustrations in this document were drawn by William Thompson. Best copy available has been provided.]
