An Evaluation of Kindergarten Primary Courses of Study in Teacher-Training Institutions. Bulletin, 1924, No. 3

The varied courses of study that teacher-training institutions now offer show that these institutions are actively cooperating in the movement to place school work on a more scientific basis. The modern school has accepted the principle that education is effective only as it is organized to meet children's needs and interests. The increasing specialization in the work of the school which the acceptance of this principle calls for has made the training of teachers for specific lines of service necessary. The lack of adequate adjustment on the part of the training school to meet the demand for such teachers has been one of their weaknesses. The present effort to raise the standards of work are largely directed to making more adequate adjustments possible.
