The Cooperative Education Association of Virginia. Bulletin, 1923, No. 53

Nearly a score of years ago a group of men and women, vitally interested in carrying into effect some plan by means of which people in the Old Dominion would realize the necessity for a wider democracy in education, met in Richmond, Virginia. Then it was that the germ of the Cooperative Education Association came into existence, and the following spring it was formally organized. The Cooperative Education Association became the expression in Virginia of that vital and far-reaching citizenship movement in the Southern States for the building of an adequate public-school system and the training of what has been well denominated "the forgotten man." This patriotic effort for the rebuilding of the life of the South, through the growth of the community consciousness and the development of public education, swept over this section of the country with something akin to religious passion. Public spirit was awakened in the hearts of great numbers of men and women, who then and there dedicated themselves to this service to their native State and their reunited country. This bulletin covers topics relating to the Cooperative Education Association of Virginia such as: Program of Cooperation; Constitution; County Federation of Leagues; Organization Chart; State Conference; Financial Support; and County Councils of Conference and Cooperation.
