Objectives

The primary objective of this dissertation was to determine whether first-grade children can learn the basic concepts in Our Working World: Families at Work. Since instruments suitable for assessing achievement on Families at Work were not available when this study was initiated, a ...

The Education of the Whole Man is essentially two books in one volume. The first is a general treatise. This book opens with a challenge to Borsodi’s Indian friends.

As farmers and agricultural businesses adjust to changing agricultural conditions, so must the institutions serving farmers and the rest of agriculture, So the pressures for adjustment come full circle; the technological inputs developed within Land Grant Colleges and fed into ...

Federal Aid To Education: Some Economic Aspects Of Major Legislative Proposals For Support Of Primary And Secondary Schools In The United States, 1946-1958, Ray O. Werner Sep 1959

Federal Aid To Education: Some Economic Aspects Of Major Legislative Proposals For Support Of Primary And Secondary Schools In The United States, 1946-1958, Ray O. Werner

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research from the College of Business

The hope in undertaking this study was to make a comparative evaluation of the myriad of federal legislative proposals introduced to provide some financial support for education. However,education is a tremendously broad area of study; furthermore, the span of time through which it has presented significant public issues is great.The need to render this study manageable,and at the same time to concentrate on issues of current importance and interest, led, therefore, to the exclusion of other topics from consideration. Consequently, the federal legislative proposals examined are only those which would have provided federal financial supportforprimaryandsecondary education in ...

Taxable Property Per Child In Farm And Non-Farm Communities Of Iowa, W. H. Lancelot May 1943

Taxable Property Per Child In Farm And Non-Farm Communities Of Iowa, W. H. Lancelot

Bulletin P

There is much evidence that the education provided for the farm children who attend the one-room schools of the state is distinctly inferior to that available to the children who live in the towns and cities. Teachers are not, in general, so well prepared for their work. Repeated tests have shown that the instruction given by them is generally less effective than that provided in the elementary grades of urban school systems. Not so many of the pupils, in proportion to their total number, complete the eighth grade as of town and city children. Those who do so are permitted ...
