APPENDIX A.

ARRANGEMENT OF REPORTS. In connection with the subject of the unification of statistical returns, it may not be amiss to mention that, at the National Bureau of Education, the order of arrangement in the abstracts of educational matters from the different States is substantially that which is common throughout Europe; that is, things relating to primary, secondary, superior, professional and scientific, and special instruction are attended to in regular succession, where the material for such arrangement is supplied, the primary division embracing all below high schools and classical academies; the secondary taking in high schools, classical academies, and other institutions above the grammar-schools, but below the rank of colleges; the superior, relating to colleges and universities; the professional and scientific, to theological, medical, law, and scientific schools, inclusive of the agricultural colleges; and the special, to schools for orphans, for the deaf mute, the blind, the idiotic, the subjects for reformatory training, and others not reducible to the first four classes named.

Of course it is not for the Bureau to prescribe that its mode of arrangement shall prevail; nor is it disposed to even recommend that such shall be the case. But those connected with the preparation of reports may see that some conformity to this arrangement would not only facilitate comparison but also tend to bring our educational statistics into a correspondence with the European ones.

APPENDIX B. The portions of the Centennial Programme which seem especially to claim attention from schools, teachers, superintendents, beads of colleges, and educational journalists are the following:
