This investigation has a three-fold purpose: (1) to study the handling of retarded and mentally handicapped pupils in the Richmond Public Schools from 1912 through 1941, (2) to determine current practices followed in the school systems of other large cities, and, (3) to summarize and appraise the various methods suggested for dealing with mentally handicapped pupils who have reached age twelve or beyond.
