The statistics presented in this chapter were furnished by the State offices of education of the 48 States, by the District of Columbia, and by the 8 outlying parts of the United States. For the most part, these statistics relate to public elementary and secondary schools, although such data as were made available by the States are included in separate tables for private and parochial schools. Seventeen States and the District of Columbia maintaining separate schools for white and Negro pupils, supplied data permitting the presentation of Negro school statistics. Whenever possible, totals and averages for the Nation are included. Statistics from the outlying parts are included in several of the tables but are excluded from the totals. In no case have the statistics of colleges, universities, and professional schools been included. Data relating to and reflecting changes in enrollments, attendance of pupils, length of school term, income, expenditures, per capita costs, etc., have been basically considered for the statements and interpretations presented in the textual material. Significant trends for the States and the Nation and variations within and among States are pointed out for the biennium 1934-36 and for the 6-year period since 1930. (Contains 61 tables, 12 figures and 2 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
