dc.description.abstractIt is the purpose of this thesis to present the history of the Pinkham elementary school, Winnipeg, during the period 1883 to 1951, inclusive, and to examine progress and factors affecting the progress of this school more especially during the past twenty-five years. The study involves a consideration of some major aspects of school progress outlined in the Table of Contents, including such matters as building and equipment, economic and population changes, the progress of pupil population through the grades and the influence of supervision upon school progress. It also includes discussion of social and economic conditions of the community. The school is specially chosen because the social and economic circumstances which obtain in the area seem to have had a marked influence on the school story and this thesis investigates this assumption. The study is based upon a detailed examination of all records on file in the Department of Superintendence and such as are to be had in the school pertaining to enrolment, attendance, classification and promotion, elimination of pupils, teaching staff and principals. It should be pointed out that the study must be limited to factual information because of the difficulty of assessing in detail many factors for success such as the sincerity, sympathy and intelligence with which teachers have applied themselves to their task...en_US
