Nature and Purpose of the Survey
This survey was conducted for the purpose of determining whether or not the parents in Mexia Colored School District approved of the modem teacher and the school system as it was "being practiced in this township in 1950. It was "believed that certain questions could be answered by the parents which would lead to a better under** standing of the school problems of today concerning the teacher and parent. A secondary purpose of this survey was to obtain many suggestions from parents which would be helpful in making the school system a greater success than it had previously been.
Reason for Selection of the Topic
The writer was made to feel the importance of such a survey by facts and data presented in a magazine article entitled, "Recent Education Survey Reflects New Attitude of Parents Toward School Program and the Teacher." The question which this article suggested was: Would a survey similar to this one reflect new attitudes of the parents of Mexia Colored School District toward the school and teacher? In this study, an attempt was made to determine whether or not the parents of the township were satisfied with the school system of 1950.
