College News and Departmental Notes: Educational Administration
by Departmental notes - 1918
There will be available in a short time the latest survey of a city school system which has been made by the department of educational administration. During the late winter and spring of 1918, the department, under the direction of Professor George D. Strayer, undertook the survey of the school system of Paterson, New Jersey. The survey was conducted as field work in connection with Course 403—404. It was made at the request of Superintendent John R. Wilson and the Board of Education of Paterson. Approximately fifty students of the class took part in the field work and in the final summaries and written reports. The survey is divided into four parts as follows: the financial problems involved in the school systems of Paterson; the school building plant and its measurement; the measurement of the achievements of pupils; and the quality of instruction.
