Summary

Based upon data derived from U.S. Office of Education biennial reports, this pamphlet presents statistical information on the changing status of the one-teacher school (1918-36) for purposes of determining the extent to which these schools have been eliminated, the rate of that elimination in recent years, and the trends of the future. Specifically, this publication documents: (1) the number of one-teacher schools by states; (2) percentages of one-teacher schools by states for successive bienniums based upon the number of such schools in 1918; (3) the number and percentage of public school children estimated to be attending one-teacher and two-teacher rural schools in 1934-35 by state; (4) percentages showing the ratios of the number of teachers in one-teacher schools to the total number of teachers in all schools; and (5) percentages showing the ratios of the number of one-teacher schools to the total number of schools. Among the more significant statistics presented are: for the nation as a whole, the number of one-teacher schools was reduced by 65,000 between 1918-36, having decreased in all states; by 1936 the national percentage of one-teacher schools had dropped to 15.2% as compared to 31% in 1918; for the nation as a whole, nearly 10.9% of the children were attending one-teacher schools in 1934-35 and 5.1% attending two-teacher schools.
