The Administration Of The Finances Of Extra-Curricular Activities In High Schools Of North Central Kansas., Martin H. Isaacson

Master's Theses

School administrators and the public in general are realizing the important place that extra-curricular activities have in the modern high school.

Parenthetically it may be said, however, that, since the advent of the state codes as well as the national code ...
