Excerpt from Educational Survey of Burke County, Georgia, Vol. 34
There are in Burke county 25 white schools, all operat ing under the County Unit System; that is, there are no Independent systems in the county. This greatly simpli fies the problems of administration. A county-wide local school tax was voted in 1909, and reasonably liberal levies have been made by the county administration. This has enabled the children to enjoy the benefits of a nine-months school year, with comparatively liberal salaries to the teachers. Thus it is seen that the business administration of the public school system has been far above that of most Georgia counties.
The class-room results, as revealed in the educational measurements reported elsewhere in this bulletin, were generally much below what was to have been expected from so good a business administration. There were, however, notable exceptions.
