The purpose of this report is to bring together important facts concerning the education of Negroes in the United States in general, and in the 17 States and the District of Columbia where separate schools are maintained for the colored and white races, in particular. Most of the statistics appearing here may be found in the various chapters of the biennial surveys of education in the United States for the years under consideration. Many inquiries are received by the Office for information on the education of Negroes from practically every State in the Union, the outlying parts of the United States, and from foreign countries. In order to facilitate the furnishing of desired information, and in order to provide a convenient source of data for students and others interested in the subject, this report is compiled. The statistics presented in this report relate to all levels and types of education in the 17 Southern States and the District of Columbia where separate schools for the colored and white races are maintained (hereinafter referred to as "the 18 States"). Certain facts bearing on the enrollment of Negro children in the public schools of many Northern, Eastern, and Western States where it was possible to obtain the data were also included. Some of the data are based on estimates furnished by the United States census, but most of the information was furnished by the State officers of education, and by individual schools and colleges, both public and private. (Contains 6 footnotes, 24 tables, and 11 figures.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
