This study is concerned with the effect of Missouri’s non-reciprocity of payment of high school tuition on Missouri pupils who were living near the Iowa line in 1936, and with the method by which the inequity disclosed was eliminated.

Through petitions, an amendment to section 16 of the Missouri school law passed.This amendment brought opportunity nearer to many youths.It also has done much to promote the already, cordial spirit existing along the state line and helped eliminate the provincialism that is too often found among people.It has promoted educational ideals among a worthy group of our citizens.

This study has indicated that in some cases, at least, legislators are friendly toward school legislation for which a definite need has been shown.There are doubtless other problems that might be solved by proper legislation, for which the cooperation of legislators can be obtained.
