This pamphlet is an expanded part of a larger and more inclusive study that is being made on "Town-Country Relations in South Dakota, 1901 - 1951" for the Agricultural Experiment Station, South Dakota State College, by Douglas Chittick, Associate Rural Sociologist. The trends in education for South Dakota are closely related to the conditions found in most communities in the State. This pamphlet has been designed to give a general understanding or State-wide conditions with respect to the small high school. In it Mr. Chittick has indicated the trends in school attendance and reorganization of school districts. He has also summarized some of the principles involved in school district reorganization. The recommendations made are worthy or your consideration. The late Dr. W. F. Kumlien, former Head of the Department of Rural Sociology at South Dakota State College, was one of the pioneers in the study of the reorganization of school districts. I feel that this pamphlet will answer many of the inquiries concerning school district reorganization that have come to this office since his death.
