Health Education as a Foundation for Healthful Living.
Oberteuffer, Delbert
The time has come for education to be concerned first about the state of being of each individual; that is, the physical and mental health of each child so that he can become a more receptive learner. The intellectual processes which education has dealt with for so long is dependent upon the physical processes for their functional adequacy and efficiency. Several areas of health education can be readily adapted to the school situation. Certain health areas are more critical and vital to the well being of society than traditional academic subjects. Effective health education may be a partial solution to some of the problems education faces such as the drouput and developing a student's self-image. (DB)
