LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL.

DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,

BUREAU OF EDUCATION,

Washington, July 16, 1924. Sir: During the period of years since the World War there has been an unprecedented school building program undertaken to relieve congestion which developed under war-time conditions. This congestion is only partly relieved and schools will be built in increasing numbers during the next few years. More than a billion dollars will be expended for this purpose in the next half decade. It is highly important that these buildings should be constructed to meet the best requirements of instruction, health, and sanitation, with some regard for architectural appearance but imperative that economy should be used so far as is consistent with efficiency.

Those who are responsible for this program are turning to the Bureau of Education for advice and assistance. I have, therefore, asked Fletcher B. Dresslar, special agent of the Bureau of Education, to prepare this exhaustive study of American school buildings, and I ask that it be printed as a bulletin of the Bureau of Education. It will be of immense value at this time to State departments, county boards of education, city boards of education, and all those who are responsible for the building of schools. Respectfully submitted.

JNO. J. TIGERT,

Commissioner. The SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR.
