Supervision of the Education of Negroes as a Function of State Departments of Education. Bulletin, 1940, No. 6. Monograph No. 11
Caliver, Ambrose

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. The report included in the present monograph deals with the origin and historical development, functions, and activities of the supervision of Negro education as observed in 16 of the 17 States having separate schools for the Negro and white races. These special supervisory activities were made necessary by the additional responsibilities growing out of the dual systems of schools. In addition to improving instruction, the supervisors having charge of these special activities had as their function changing public opinion toward the education of Negroes, and the promotion of interracial good will. This bulletin contains the following five chapters: (1) Introduction; (2) Origin and Historical Development; (3) Promotional and Administrative Activities; (4) Objectives and Activities of Supervisory Program; and (5) Conclusions. (Contains 4 tables and 9 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
