This thesis concerns itself with administrative practices that have influenced the schools of Coleman County, Texas, from their "beginning to the present. One writer in the field of administration, A. B. Moehlraan, in his work on School Administration defines administration as a group of activities that: (l) plans a system which carries out the policies of the hoard of education in providing physical, financial, and educational conditions under which educational agencies may work to "best advantage; (2) selects, assigns and co-ordinates agents under this adopted plan; (3) maintains these policies in continuous effective operation; (H) provides channels through which information about conditions may be promptly transmitted from the field to the central office; (5) provides channels through which all agents and agencies of the school system shall work for continuous improvement; and (6) furnish leadership.
This study points out some activities that have had direct influence on the early and present Negro schools in the county, and endeavors to bring to attention past experiences which may act as a basis for present and future practices.
