Report to the Commission of Inquiry ( February 1934 ) 20 pages

School Organization – Detroit Metropolitan Area

Considers the educational and financial aspects of a proposal to consolidate the school districts of Wayne County into a single organic unit. In 1934, there were 101 mutually independent school districts in the county, each under the control of a board of education responsible to the people of the district. Organization of a county unit presumably would involve consolidation of the districts of the county and the creation of a single small county board of education, responsible to the people of the county. The numerous local districts would be abolished and the several existing boards of education would cease to exist. the responsibility for the administration and supervision of the county district would be delegated by the county board of educaiton to a superintendent of schools who would be the chief executive of the public schools of the county.
