The second national conference on consolidation of rural schools and transportation of pupils was called by the United States Commissioner of Education and held at Cleveland, Ohio, February 26, 1923. Twenty-three States were represented. Those in attendance included State commissioners of education, rural-school workers from State departments of education, professors of education in State teachers' colleges, county superintendents, helping teachers, and representatives of Federal bureaus, all of whom were active in consolidating schools or otherwise directly interested in this work. The plan of the conference was to have a rather informal meeting of people actually at work promoting consolidation and so limit the discussion to three phases of the subject: (1) The training of administrators and teachers for consolidated schools; (2) How shall we determine what constitutes an adequate unit of support and a reasonable unit of territory for a consolidated school; and (3) How shall we arrive at uniform terminology, or, at least, at a general understanding of terms used in a study of centralization in the States?
