College News and Departmental Notes: Rural Education

by Departmental notes - 1920

The rural education department during the summer session enrolled the largest number of students in its history. Several classes showed an increase of a hundred per cent over any preceding summer. The increasing professionalization of the rural school superintendency has led to a demand for summer work especially fitted to the needs of this field. To satisfy this demand a new three point course was given for county superintendents, and a week's County Superintendents' Conference was held, consisting of special lectures, personal conferences, and round table conferences. The speakers at the Conference included Professor O. G. Brim, of the rural education department of Cornell University, Mr. Z. E. Scott, formerly state supervisor of elementary education in New Jersey, and Professor Bagley, Professor Strayer, and Professor Engelhardt of the Teachers College Faculty. There was excellent attendance at the Conference, which was generally pronounced a helpful and desirable feature of the summer's work. The supervision of rural schools, as a function distinct from administration, is being emphasized more and more, as was indicated by a much larger enrollment in this field than in preceding years.
