It is the problem of this thesis to discover the extent to which educational services are rendered available to the Negro population of Washington and adjoining counties by Pickard High School. This problem involves the consideration of the structure of the school so as to determine the personnel and the machinery through which it performs its functions. An attempt at an analysis of educational functions is made to determine how much the services of the school are rendered to those outside of its jurisdiction.
The objectives of this study may be stated as follows: To discover some of the basic facts concerning the organization and functions of the school. To search for the relationship between the curriculum offered in Pickard High School and the community.
The problem is limited to Pickard High School which includes both the Elementary and High School Departments, and those educational activities sponsored by the High School in its effort to serve the population of Washington and adjoining counties.
Information concerning the personnel, classification and functions of the school was secured from personal interviews with the principal, teachers, and patrons, and from Pickard High School records. Data concerning the school population and changes in Negro school population were taken from the Public School Directory, 1933-34 and 1938-39. Population and agricultural census (1890-1935) were used as a basis for discussing background factors.
