For the effective administration of a program of educational, personal, and social adjustment, a planned system of records and reports for the diagnosis of personalities and their difficulties is necessary# The organization for guidance of pupils in the newer school systems usually provides for a cumulative case study record for each child from the kindergarten through grade twelve. This developmental history includes records of school achievement, psychological traits, health problems, vocational aptitudes, organization of this material, and provision for its use have been worked out in such a way as to give continuous, easily accessible, and valuable help to the teacher. An attempt is made to begin recording data that will help this matter of educational adjustment in the lily Island Community. It is not enough to know that the child reads poorly or well and pass him on. The power of a child to extract meaning from the printed page depends at many cases on an number of factors. It is very necessary, as this study reveals, to note limitations as found in; Economic background, Out-of-school experiences, Mental maturity. The children in the lowest economic bracket exhibit the limitations mentioned above and constitute the case studies of the dull and retarded groups. Whether time will accentuate this deficit is another problem.
