The purpose of this study is to provide a report of practices, policies, and trends in public elementary school organization and administration. It is intended that this current publication will make available current findings with reference to how schools are presently operating and how they are meeting continuing as well as new problems. The data was gathered on the basis of a refined national sampling technique. The sample was designed to establish a 5 percent confidence level for all national findings and a 10 percent confidence level for all subgroup findings. Stratification was made on the basis of four population groups and four geographical regions. The urban places for the sample were selected through randomization. Of particular value and significance of course, to the cooperative interest and support of the school administrators whose response alone made this complete coverage possible. The data received were electronically processed on computer machines which made a high degree of sophisticated data-processing and analysis possible. Three appendixes provide: (1) Sampling Plan and Procedure; (2) Selected Urban Places; and (3) Survey Questionnaire Form. An index is included. (Contains 88 tables, 15 charts, and 2 diagrams.)
