This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ...King's Cabinet and possesses all the powers pertaining to a Cabinet officer. The will of the Minister is executed through four sets of school boards, whose executive and territorial authority decreases according to the order here named. The kingdom is divided (1) into thirteen provinces, each with its respective school board appointed by the Minister. These provinces are comparable in some respects to our States. (2) The thirteen provinces are each divided into thirty-six counties (Regierungen) with their respective school boards appointed in part by the king and in part by the provincial school boards. (3) The counties are further divided into large townships, or districts (Kreis), comparable to our townships. Each township also has its school board. Each township school board appoints a special school committee for each school within its territory. The course of study for the elementary schools of Prussia, as is true in all the German schools, is prescribed in outline by the Minister of Education and his colaborers on behalf of the State. It is interpreted and adapted in accordance with this outline by the county (Regierung) school board, which is practically appointed by the central government, and whose territory frequently includes nearly a million inhabitants. Neither the township (Kreis) nor the local school board has any choice in the selection of subjects of instruction or in the selection of "The Making of Citizens," Hughes, p. 67. text books for their children. Approximately the same bureaucratic system exists in all the German States as in this of Prussia.
