DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,

BUREAU OF EDUCATION,

Washington, D. C., November 27, 1875. SIR : The desire that specimens of the actual school-work of students should be shown at Philadelphia has been expressed by many educators, and tbis work is included in the classification furnished by the Centennial Commission.

The difficulty has been to devise a uniform plan for the preparation of students' work.

The department of superintendence of the National Educational Association, in session at Minneapolis in August, 1875, cousidered the subject, and, after full discussion, referred to a committee the preparation of a suitable schedule, in accordance with the provisions of which all such specimens of scholars' work should be prepared. It was understood that the recommendations of this committee would be accepted as the standard. Many inquiries in reference to the methods of preparing schoolwork have been addressed to this Office. As furnishing a satisfactory answer to these inquiries, and in accordance with the requests of members of the National Educational Association, I recommend the publication, by this Bureau, of the report of this committee, with the schedule as adopted by them. Very respectfuliy, your obedient servant,

JOHN EATON,

Commissioner. Hon. Z. CHANDLER,

Secretary of the Interior. Approved and publication ordered.
