High School Administration, by Horace A. Hollister, undertakes to cover the whole ground briefly but clearly, treating every subject in a practical way and suggesting what books to read for a more intensive study of each phase. Beginning with a brief epitome of the history of secondary education, the author considers the position of the secondary school in our system of education, both legally and technically, comparing and contrasting it with foreign schools. He then treats each phase of high-school administration-grounds, buildings, equipment, textbooks and supplies, the management of the school, and the extension and projection of the school life into the life of the community. Especially noteworthy are the passages on an ideal scheme of legal enactments (p. 46), on a modified method of furnishing free textbooks and supplies (p. 8I), on the employment of "cadet" teachers (p. 96), on the training of teachers (p. Ioo), on teachers' investments (p. io8), on the purpose of instruction (p. 173), on correlation (pp. 208-9), on the definition of method (p. 218), on common fallacies (p. 223), on an ideal scheme of promotions (p. 231), on community life (p. 266), and on moral and religious training (p. 281). The appendixes seem well chosen to illustrate the corresponding portions of the text. CHARLES MARSH CLAY
