The conservation of childhood and youth is a problem that is occupying the attention of educators, publicists, and welfare workers in this and other countries. Conservation of child life is not separable from the problem of conservation of womanhood. During the past two years, greater service was demanded from the women throughout the country. Some were called upon to take the places of men who had joined the army; some were left to assume the double duties of father and mother. Help must be given to broaden the outlook of the women, many of whom live in homes so isolated that opportunities for development are lacking. The viewpoint of the men who have been across the sea has been liberalized by contact with foreign lands and peoples. It will help in the readjustment of the returning forces if each agency of general welfare will consider the needs of the home in working out programs. This bulletin covers the following topics: (1) Schools for mothers in England and Wales; (2) The work of the United States Federal Government in home education; (3) The community problem--the need for cooperation between home and school; and (4) Educational material available from the State Boards of health to aid in home education.
