Schools and Classes for Delicate Children. Bulletin, 1930, No. 22
Rogers, James Frederick

Many a teacher, even in remote pedagogic times, held his classes in the open air or, in suitable weather led his pupils out of doors for a session or for a day. Such classes in the open air were for all pupils and the chief change was of air and scene. The open-air school is a product of the present century. This new school is intended for a selected group of children. The open air school has brought about better ventilation, especially as regards suitable temperatures, in all schools and it has awakened an interest in right feeding and ample rest for all children. In turn, the need for special open-air schools has been very much reduced by better ventilation of other schools, and by more attention to the nutritional needs of the average child. The open-window room answers so far as the winter terms of school are concerned, much the same purpose as the specially built open-air school. It has some advantages over the latter. Because much the same program may be carried out in the open-window room as in the open-air school, a confusion of names has arisen. The open-air school and open-window class should be devoted especially to the care of the child with juvenile or beginning adult tuberculosis.
