Summary "This book treats of the organization and administration of public education, as well as of the technique employed by the teacher in his daily work. There is an assumption throughout the volume that teachers will work to best advantage only when they understand the organization of the school system in which they are employed and the reasons for the administrative procedure in which they are asked to cooperate. If teachers are to work intelligently in cooperation with boards of education and superintendents of schools, they must know more about our current practice in the field of educational administration. This volume furnishes to teachers the knowledge necessary for such intelligent cooperation. The chapters dealing with records and reports, the organization of public education, the classification and progress of children, the measurement of the achievements of children, the health of school children, and extra-curricula activities make possible an intelligent and sympathetic cooperation with the plans of the administrator. The treatment of the purpose of education in a democratic society, the technique of teaching, teaching children to study, class organization, and training for citizenship, while they deal more intimately with the detail of the teacher's everyday work, are made most significant only as they are related to the principles of administration which control. It may confidently be predicted that courses for teachers in training will in the future deal with the problems of administration, as well as with the technique of teaching, and the problems of class management"--Introduction.
