This catalog lists Office of Education publications which are either in stock or in press as of October 1960, and are expected to be available for sale to the public through the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, early in 1961. Many new titles have been added to the previous catalog, "Publications of the Office of Education: 1959," reflecting the increased interest in all phases of American education and the stimulus provided by the National Defense Education Act (NDEA) of 1958. Reports on the first year's activities under several NDEA programs are included in the list. The "Biennial Survey of Education in the United States" has been extended to provide sections of statistics on county units, rural counties, and suburban counties. In addition to new studies, this list includes recent editions of annual surveys which, since the academic year 1869-70, have become traditional publications of the Office of Education. These studies provide data and forecasts concerning finances, enrollment, staff, curriculum, and facilities of public schools and colleges and universities. Through these publications the Office of Education seeks to fulfill its responsibility, dating back to 1867, to "diffuse such information respecting the organization and management of schools and school systems, and methods of teaching, as shall aid the people of the United States in the establishment and maintenance of efficient school systems, and otherwise promote the cause of education throughout the country."
