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 present publication is one of the series of monographs dealing with supervision. Essentially it includes discussion of the history and development of secondary school supervision, the supervisory personnel, the functions performed, the activities engaged in, and the working relationships which facilitate supervision at this level. Services rendered by personnel assigned to both high-school supervision and supervision of vocational education are included. Sections in this monograph include: (1) Development; (2) Organization and Personnel; (3) Functions; (4) Activities; (5) Cooperative Relationships; and (6) Some Recurring Practices. (Contains 10 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
