Limited studies have been made of certain factors relating to the education of Negroes in rural communities, but few investigations have been made of sufficient scope to warrant valid conclusions.10 It is the purpose of this study, therefore, to present rather detailed facts regarding some of the more important phases of elementary education for Negroes in rural communities in McLennan County, Texas, where a special supervising teacher is not employed. The most important phases considered are: (1) accessibility of Negro schools and transportation of pupils; (2) enrollment; (3) pupil mortality; (4) health and mental life: (5) the staff; (6) administrative and supervisory practices; (7) buildings arid equipment; and (8) extended services and community relationships. Beyond this statement, let the thesis impart the study.
