Table “B” shows the population between five and twenty and the quarterly distribution of the State school tax to the white schools of the several counties and the city of Baltimore.
Table “C” shows the colored population between five and twenty, and the quarterly distribution of the State school tax to colored schools of the several counties and the city of Baltimore.
Table “D” shows the assessed value of the property subject to taxation in the several counties, with the amounts, as “State School Tax," "Free School Fund,” “Academic Fund,” “Appropriation to Colored Schools,” and the “County School Tax.”
Table “E” shows receipts from all sources, with the totals, (including balances carried over.)
Table “F” shows the expenditures of the several counties under the items of teachers' salaries, incidental expenses, books and stationery, building, repairing and furniture, supervision and office expenses, miscellaneous, interest, indebted. ness paid, with the balance on hand and totals.
Table “G” shows the number of pupils in the primary grades, and the number studying special branches.
Table “H” shows the number of schools in each county, the number of months schools were open, the number of teachers, male and female, the number of different pupils, the average number of pupils enrolled and in attendance, and the highest number enrolled in one term.
Table “I” shows the cost of the colored schools and the statistics (under the same heads as those mentioned in Table “H”) of the colored schools separately.
Table “K” shows the receipts from all sources for colored schools (including balance carried over.)
Table “L” shows the expenditures for colored schools under the heads mentioned in Table “F.”.
Table “M” gives the statistics of the several colleges receiving State donations, and of the State Normal School.
Table “N” gives the statistics of the several schools and academies receiving State donations.
The county reports give in detail the enrollment and the average attendance for each term, and the expenses of each individual school, under the heads of rent, fuel, repairs, incidentals, furniture, blackboards and stoves, books, and teachers' salaries. Every citizen can thus know what the school in his district has cost, and may become the auditor of the accounts. It is believed that no State in the Union furnishes a similarly minute detail of expenses.
