FEDERAL SECURITY AGENCY,
U. S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION,
MY DEAR SIR: It is the desire of the U. S. Office of Education to bring to the attention of graduate school faculties information concerning current practice and experimentation in the field of the education of school administrators, that is, of superintendents, principals, and supervisors. Your cooperation in filling out the attached schedule of information is therefore earnestly requested.
This is not to be a survey in the usual sense but rather an invitation to the institutions canvassed to share with other institutions their experiences which may serve as constructive leads and suggestions. The results of this canvass will be distributed in bulletin form to all those responding. In making use of the data collected in this inquiry no attempt will be made to evaluate practice as reported. For each institution responding there will be prepared an objective, positive statement of what is being attempted which may be of interest to others.
It is hoped that this inquiry may result in some interuniversity visitation and exchange of experience and ideas. As one dean of education put it recently, "I would go anywhere in the United States where there is an idea operating. I would want to study it and live with it." Another educator calls for a "new kind" of directory, high-spotting current, constructive practice in the field.
A franked envelope requiring no postage is enclosed for your reply together with a penalty label for mailing any pertinent publications.
BESS GOODYKOONTZ, Assistant U. S. Commissioner of Education.
