Remarkable Growth in Ed'

The Aenuican high school hns grown
phenomenally In the past dozen years.
Its do,velopm jit In the last two or thrca
years being apparently greater than In
the remarkable decade Just piccedlng.
Since Ui twentieth century opined tho
number of public high schools has al
most doubled and the number of stu

the beginning of the century. The most
remarkable feature Is the great Increxse
III the proportion of tliose who go from
the grades Into the high school.
Only a very few years ago Uie high
school was chiefly attended by children
of tho ilch and moderately well-ito-do.
Today n aily one-fourth of the children
who enters tlie elementary so!ool een
tually pass Into 'the high school. Tito
exact figure Is 22 per c nt. If negro chll

significant, since certain critics of the
public high schools have through a mis-
understanding of th: official reports, con
tended that a much smaller percentage

Almost equally significant for publlo
education is the fact that by far the
most rapidly growli has been in the
public hlgii sc.hoo1s.The private secondary
schools show a healthy increase 25 per
cent In attendance since lf00; but the
public high schools have lactunlly double
their attendance. In tlie same p rlod. To
make the comparison on another basis;
In 1S90 forty out of every hundred high
schools wete private and sixty public;
In 1900 the proportion ihad changied to iS
and 77; and today there are only 18 pri
