The purpose of this study was to ascertain the relative accomplishments of students, on the same academic level in ten selected rural and urban schools, on the basis of attendance, records and grades. It is proposed to find first: the distribution of enrollments, re-enrollments, promotions, retentions and graduations. Second: distribution of averages of tenure, daily attendance, semester pupil-grades, grade subject load, enrollment per grade and the distribution of teachers who kept records on pupil reaction to good citizenship principles.
This study was extended to include five high schools and five elementary schools, or elementary departments in high schools. Five ofthe schools selected were urban and five were rural schools. They were located in the six Texas counties as follows: Harris, Montgomery, Walker, Grimes, Brazos and Robertson. The study was based on record found in files in the respective departments for the first semester of the school-year, 1948-49. Questionnaires were also used in securing the information sought.
