The general purpose of this investigation is to determine trends in theory and practice as to the powers and duties of city school superintendents. More definitely stated, the objective is to present answers to the following questions: (1) What are the trends in the statutory powers and duties conferred upon city school superintendents in the several states?; (2) To what extent do the trends in statutory powers and duties of the city school superintendent take the direction of the status recommended by educational leaders, and how closely do they conform to the powers and duties which city school superintendents actually exercise in practice.
