Excerpt from Report on Education in Texas and Recommendations Made to the Goverr and the Thirty-Seventh Legislature, 1921 To his Excellency, Goverr William P. Hobby. Dear Sir: I herewith submit for your consideration and that of the Thirty-seventh Legislature, a brief summary of facts in regard to education in Texas, together with recommendations as to legislation for the schools. As it is improbable that the Legislature may be able to grant all changes in the school laws herein recommended, some of these are proposed merely for consideration, and the reasons for such recommendations are set forth, that the Legislature may choose from the measures proposed, those which, in its judgment, are of most importance. The next two years will see the close of my service as State Superintendent of Public Instruction, as I do t expect again to be a candidate for this office. It is, therefore, but natural that I should desire to set before the Goverr and the Legislature all of those measures which I deem important for the advancement of the public schools of Texas, and necessary to establish an efficient system of public schools. Furthermore the laws of our state impose upon me this duty. Your Committee on Education has selected for special endorsement, those measures which I deem of paramount importance, and these, in my summary, precede less important suggestions for which I did t request their endorsement.
