In Brazos County, the former superintendent, Mrs. W. E. Neeley, the present superintendent, Mr. Luther Pearson, the County Board of Education, and some of the trustees of the schools have met a number of times to discuss consolidation. In a few cases they did not just talk, but actually set about to consolidate some of the smaller schools. Perhaps they saw some advantages in taking such steps, either from an educational standpoint or an economical one. With the facts mentioned above in view, an attempt will be made to study the educational opportunities that exist in Brazos County for Negro children, in Common School Districts.

The purpose of this study is given in the form of three questions. These questions are: 1. How does the scholastic achievement of Negro pupils In the common school districts compare with other communities in the United States? 2. How do the educational results achieved in consolidated schools compare with those that are not consolidated? 3. What recommendations can be made in order to derive the best in education for Negro children in the Common Districts in Brazos County?
