PREFATORY NOTE TO VOLUME XXIV.
With this volume (VIII. of National Series, and 24 of Entire Series) the National Series of the American Journal of Education, commenced in 1861, will close. Including two supplementary volumes (one to Volume II. (18 of the Entire Series) and the other to Volume VII. (23 of the Entire Series)], which are devoted almost exclusively to the Circulars and Reports of the United States Commissioner of Education, not included in other volumes, the National Series embraces ten volumes, which present a more comprehensive survey of the entire field of national systems and institutions of education in all countries in which schools for general or special purposes have been recognized and administered by law, than is to be found in the same number of volumes in any language, so far as we know.
We hope to close our editorial labors in this wide and interesting field of educational journalism, begun with the Connecticut Common School Journal in 1838, by issuing an International Series of the American Journal of Education, in which the existing status of schools, and the problem of public instruction in different countries will be discussed by educators and teachers' prominent in their respective fields, from their practical familiarity with principles and details, and comparisons will be instituted between the schools, methods, and statistics of the different systems for the general advancement of human culture everywhere. The terms of this series will be set forth at the close of this volume.
