A Professional Library for a City Superintendent of Schools


by Alexander Carter 1931

THIS list is the outcome of a project aiming to meet numerous JL requests from superintendents and board members for two things: 1. Information and references which on any common sense basis a superintendent of schools ought to have at his elbow. 2. Names of the best books in certain phases of school administration. The idea was to secure a list so essential that it could be included in the administrative equipment of each superintendent's office just the same as desks, typewriters, filing cabinets, forms, and school record blanks. In the course of the work, it was found necessary to limit the term "professional" to cover only books that the superintendent, as distinguished from other school workers, needs in his particular sphere. Books in psychology, philosophy of education, and similar fields, are omitted for three reasons: 1. There is far greater difference of opinion among competent persons as to the merit of books representing different schools of thought in these fields, than is the case in the field of school administration.
