From the preface:
"In the preparation of this bulletin the authors have had one major purpose in view; to present clearly, simply, and accurately such facts concerning the physical and human resources of Michigan as will enable educators to adjust the school curriculum in the light of the implications these resources have for the education of children. To achieve this end the authors have described Michigan Today in such a way as to stimulate the understanding and imagination of the reader. It is hoped that the picture of Michigan here presented will give the reader impressions which will guide him in a choice of further studies of the resources of the state and their effect on education. An understanding of the social and economic status of Michigan with its educational implications will help to erect a series of guide-posts for the construction of a new school curriculum."
