It is the purpose of this chapter to show some of the more outstanding tendencies and examples of legislation affecting education in the United States during 1935 and 1936. During these years the legislature of every State had one or more legislative sessions, and, in addition, special sessions were called in many States. Moreover, many legislative and constitutional measures affecting education were referred to the people for determination. The three most significant tendencies in legislation affecting education during the 2 years reviewed here are toward: (1) Increased State responsibility for the support of public education; (2) A strengthening of State instrumentalities of control over education; and (3) The establishment of minimum State-aid foundation programs of State-wide application.
