By ADRIENNE RAUCHWERGER
The failure of local and state gov-
ernments to provide adequate 'ele-
mentary school education for more
than a million children is revealed in
an article in the February issue of
the American Teacher, official organ
of the American Federation of Teach-
ers.
Children in rural areas receive the
least satisfactory education and in
some poorer sections of the United
States, such as the cut-over lands
of the Great Lakes, the drought
regions of the West and the South-'

Inadequacies Of Local Primary"
Education Revealed By Report

ern wastelands, there is little or no
instruction, writes Paul T. David,
secretary of the Advisory Committee
on Education set up by the Presi-
dent.
On the basis of findings of the
committee, the city schools have
better instruction than country
schools where the average teacher's
salary falls below $600 a year. The
school terms usually close sooner than
city schools. Mr. David denies that
this condition of the rural schools is
due to the people's apathy. For he
says, "Studies for the Committee
show conclusively that the states and
areas that are predominantly rural
are the ones which make the greatest
effort in proportion to their re-
sources to support schools." He cited
Michigan as one of the states which
makes more than an average effort
to educate its inhabitants.
As a solution, the committee sug-
gests Federal grants to increase grad-
ually to 199 million dollars. The larg-
est single item will go to public ele-
mentary and secondary schools who
are most in need of outside aid.
