TEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 13 1934 COST OF RURAL PUPILS STUDIED Franklin and Hardin Among Counties Where Surrey It Conducted. AMES, March 13.--A- study to determine the relative cost of educating rural pupils in one room' schools compared with the cost of educating them in town schools Is being conducted by the Iowa State College experiment station under the direction of Prof. H. M. Hamlin of the vocational education department. The study, started here last year, is being conducted in co-operation with the state department of public instruction and with the assistance of University of Iowa and Iowa State Teachers college staff members. Beorganization Expected. It is expected that the data obtained from the study may be used by communities now planning to reorganize their school systems. An extensive reorganization is expected in the state within the next few years, according to Professor Hamlin. Â· Results of the preliminary study in Ida, Grundy, Allamakee and Decatur counties last year led educators here to believe that existing town elementary schools can supplant the one room rural schools without additional educational expense. In Franklin, Hardin. The study at present is being- conducted in 14 counties--Lyon, Humboldt, Woodbury, Hardin, Black Hawk, Monona, Story, Jasper, Poweshiek, Washington, Adams, Decatur, Franklin and Audubon. The general procedure involves remapping each area under study and assigning pupils in each rural district to some nearby town or consolidated school on the basis of distance and ease of transportation and availability of unused building space. Professor Hamlin believes that community boards will not consider cost alone in their local school reorganization, but,that the comparative cost of the present educational system and other possible systems should receive major consideration. He says that Iowa ranks sixteenth in elementary and sscondary education, according to the latest rating by the office of education of the department of interior. Taken to Independence.
