The purpose of this investigation was to discover some of the administrative procedures used in small secondary schools in relation to guidance in mathematics and the mathematics curriculum.
What are the procedures used in the administration of mathematics in certain small high schools in Texas? It is felt that by finding the answers to the following questions the solution to the major problem will be found. 1. What are the courses offered in the mathematics curriculum? 2. To what extent is guidance offered to pupils in selecting mathematics courses? 3. What plans are made for individualization of mathematics? 4. To what extent, if any, was the mathematics curriculum affected in these schools during and after the war? 5. What is the professional preparation of the teachers who are teaching mathematics?
This study was limited to fifteen four-year Negro secondary schools of Texas which were located in small urban cities with a population range from 2,500 to 5,000. "This study was further limited to four-year Negro secondary schools of Texas that are approved and accredited by the state of Texas."2
