Biennial Survey of Education in the United States, 1934-1936. Bulletin, 1937, No. 2. Volume II. Chapter VI: Statistics of Special Schools and Classes for Exceptional Children

For the past decade the Office of Education has periodically compiled statistics dealing with special schools and classes for exceptional children. During that time the importance of adjusting instructional procedures to meet the needs of individual boys and girls has been increasingly stressed in the general philosophy of education. Inherent in this development has been the growth of special facilities for pupils whose mental or physical condition demands something different from the ordinary school curriculum. Residential schools have for many years taken care of extreme cases, and these they are continuing to serve, in many States with expanding facilities and enriched opportunities for the students enrolled. City schools, too, show a consistent growth in the extent of the program, even the depression failing to stem to any serious degree the advances that have been made. An index is provided.(Contains 27 tables and 9 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
