Abstract

The purpose of this study is to show the financial condition of the Colman Independent School, the change in the elementary and high-school enrollments, and the costs per pupil over the ten-year period, 1940 to 1949. As educational theory and practice have attempted to adjust themselves to, and keep abreast of a rapidly changing social order, the scope of education, as measured by the number of children and the cost of educating them, has increased and the school has assumed a different role in the training of youth than it formerly did. The organization of a school must be responsive to rapid changes, both in enrollment and cost per pupil, if modern concepts of administration are to be expressed. A study of this nature has its greatest significance for the school officers who are responsible for the financial management and for determining school policies.
