Good Schools.
Schoenheimer, Henry P.
This book contains seventeen thumb-nail sketches of schools in Europe, the United States, Asia, Britain, and Australia, as they appeared in the eye of the author as a professional educator and a journalist while travelling around the world. The author considers the schools described to be good schools, and not necessarily the 17 best schools in the world or in their respective countries, nor representative of those countries; schools that all parents and teachers ought to know about as some models for better education. The schools described are Tamagawa Gakuen (Japan), Franklin D. Roosevelt School for the physically handicapped (England), Fordham University Preparatory (Catholic) School (U. S.), Primary Correspondence School (Australia), Folkhighschools (Sweden), Experimental Gymnasium (Norway), Primary School (England), School at Sea (England), Comprehensive School and Gymnasium (Sweden), Youth Town and School (Denmark), Tagore's School at Santiniketan (India), The International School, Geneva (Switzerland), The Pioneer Palace, Moscow (U.S.S.R.), and the following schools in the U.S.: Bronx High School of Science, Dalton School (New York City), DeWitt Clinton Senior High School, Bronx.
