School Hygiene and Physical Education. Bulletin, 1927, No. 3
Rodgers, James Frederick
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
From every standpoint there has been progress during the past biennium in making the health of the school child something more than a mere theoretical objective. Not only has the day become less remote when it will be considered poor policy to waste the time and energy of the teacher (along with public funds) in trying to accomplish the impossible because of physical handicaps of the child, but there is evidence that the time is approaching when the child's physical education will be given as much recognition as his mental training, when, in fact, these will become fused into one. This bulletin reviews developments in the areas of: (1) Health examinations; (2) Solving the dental problem; (3) Nutrition; (4) Posture; (5) Measurements and tests; (6) Health education; (7) Education in human reproduction and development; (8) Physical activities; (9) Sportsmanship; (10) Mental hygiene; (11) The school day; (12) Rural schools; (13) Colleges; (14) Side results of better hygiene; (15) Health of the teacher; (16) Professional training and requirements; (17) Sanitation; and (18) Health agencies.
