Health of School Children Better
Protected Here Than Abroad j
—— — .... t
By Professor LEO BURGERSTEIN of the Royal University, Vienna
T he united states is moving forward rapidly toward
THE ZENITH IN THE MODERN ERA OF PROGRESSIVE EDUCA
TION. I CAN ONLY PREDICT THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OP
"THINGS THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN" FOR AMERICANS YEARS BE«
FORE THE OLD WORLD HAS REALIZED THAT IT IS BEING OUT
DISTANCED.
In ventilation, school buildings, lighting systems, co-opcration of va
rions states and the installation of innovations such as the single desk
and open air school ideas the United States outrivals European improve
ments. Open air schools are IDEAL METHODS OF INSTRUC
TION.
The interest displayed by people of wealth is one of the factors
which have made improvement in the conditions of your country re
markable.
The hygienic importance of the single scat idea as practiced in nearly
all American schools cannot be overestimated. Children sitting alone
arc less liable to infection.
The highly polished wire glass windows used in the school buildings
of America are also a vast asset to the health of the school child. This
glass produces more and BETTER LIGHT. As a result children de
not suffer as much from eye strain. BLACKBOARDS ARE A MIS
TAKE, as the boards, in many cases covering one entire wall of the
schoolroom, consume a great deal of light White boards are ideal.
Black crayon makes the writing on these as prominent. i
