CHAPTER XXI
CITY SCHOOL SYSTEMS, 1923-24

INTRODUCTION

This report presents the statistics of public schools in cities for the school year 1923-24. The cities are grouped according to the population groups as set forth by the Bureau of the Census. The various tables describe these groups with respect to size. Every city in Group I made a report. Groups II and III are 98 per cent complete. This degree of completeness is due largely to the fact that some cities were visited by field agents of the bureau, who obtained many reports by personal solicitation and collaboration. Careful estimates have been made for cities which failed to report. Summary tables are given by States for cities in Group IV. The other groups are reported in detail.

In Groups I, II, and III, 773 cities report 23,225 schools and 14,922 buildings. The schools were in session for an average of 185 days, 19.4 per cent of the population were enrolled, 81.4 per cent of those enrolled were in average daily attendance, and 36.3 pupils were enrolled per teacher employed.
