Supervision of Parent Education as a Function of State Departments of Education. Bulletin, 1940, No. 6. Monograph No. 13

Because of the individual authority of each State for its own educational program, practices and policies differ widely among them in many respects. Yet in the midst of differences there are also common elements of development. The U. S. Office of Education, in presenting this series of monographs, has attempted to point out those common elements, to analyze the differences, and to present significant factors in State educational structure. In so doing, it accedes to the requests of a large number of correspondents who are students of State school administration and who have experienced the need for the type of material offered in this series. This monograph consists of a review of the various programs in parent education which have functioned in State departments of public education up to and including 1939. The material covers discussions of background, organization, administration, personnel, costs, services to study groups in local communities, and cooperative relations by which the parent education work throughout each State can be made more effective. (Contains 12 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
