Having taught fifteen years in the moral schools of Nacogdoches County and adjacent counties is one of the primary factors which has helped me to become interested in the work of the rural schools as a whole. Another factor that stimulated my Interest was my study in previous courses in Rural Education. I am very much indebted to my previous instructor, Professor E, S . Richards for offering the courses in the Prairie View Extension school located at Nacogdoches, Texas. It was through the purpose of these courses that I was aroused as never before to the direct needs of the rural schools of Nacogdoches County. These courses presented the fact, that not only the pupils in the rural schools, but the teachers as well did not realize nor do they appreciate the important part that they are playing in the life cycle of education from a mental, moral, physical, and social standpoint. With these phases of education in mind, I was desirous to know more about the real situation in the rural schools in Nacogdoches County.
