Excerpt from Biennial Report and Recommendations of the Superintendent of Public Instruction of North Carolina, to Goverr Charles B. Aycock: For the Scholastic Years 1902-1903 and 1903-1904 Compared with the preceding two scholastic years there has been an increase of 47,652 in the enrollment of white children reported and 20,332 in the enrollment of colored children, and an increase of 35,808 in the average daily attendance of white children and of 16,631 in the average daily attendance of colored children. In other words, during the past two years there have been these many more white and colored children, respectively, enrolled and in daily attendance in the public schools than during the preceding two years. During these two school years the white school population has increased only 6,819 and the colored school population has increased only 625. The increase, therefore, in enrollment and average daily attendance has been largely in excess of the increase in school population. During the past two years, as compared with the preceding two years, there has been an increase of 7.8 per cent. in the white enrollment and 6.9 per cent. in the colored enrollment, and an increase of 9 per cent. in the white daily attendance and 10 per cent. in the colored daily attendance. These figures show continuous and encouraging increase in enrollment and average daily attendance, indicating an increase in interest, in public confidence and in public sentiment for education.
