REPORT OF COMMISSIONER OF EDUCATION.

DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,

BUREAU OF EDUCATION,

Washington, D. C., February 1, 1891. SIR: I have the honor to submit herewith my first Annual Report, for the year ending June 30, 1889.

I entered on duty as Commissioner of Education September 12, 1889. The statistics herewith presented for the year 1888–89 have come in since that date. This Office has to wait not only for the close of the scholastic year before it can begin its Report, but it must await a further period until the State and local school officers scattered over the land have compiled and digested their statistics. Hence it happens that although returns for a given year begin to be received at the Bureau within two months after its close, they are not all in band until the following spring.

In my opinion the first part of the Report should contain such a gen. eral summary as may be made from the returns that have been received before December 1 of each year, and should be published as early as the 1st of January following. Then two or three months later should come an appendix containing the full tables revised by the addition of the returns that have been delayed.

In this Report I present at first a general survey of the educational field, together with comparative tables showing the trend of progress for a period of years. Next follow various exhibits showing the position which the United States occupies in comparison with Germany and France in respect to the provision actually made for elementary and higher education. After this there are offered several condensed statements in which the specialists of the Bureau have attempted to give the outlines of national systems of education. These are offered as first drafts which it is expected to perfect by further studies and finally reduce to brief statements showing the essential details characteristic of each system.

GENERAL STATISTICS.

The total number of pupils enrolled in the schools of all grades, public and private, in all the States, for the year ending June 30, 1889, is 13,726,574. In this number is not included the attendance on evening schools or schools for art, manual and industrial training, trades, business, or schools for the defective, dependent, and delinquent classes or
