Safety Education: Helps for Schools in Constructing a Course of Study. Bulletin, 1932, No. 8

The Department of Commerce in its highway safety conference made this pronouncement: "The problem of safety is closely linked with health, thrift, and many other elements which taken together make up the great problem of developing a finer citizenship. Educational leaders of the country are now endeavoring to weld together the essential elements of a more fundamental and far-reaching course in citizenship for the public schools than any that exist at the present time." In accordance with this idea the plan of this bulletin has been carried out. It offers a constructive program for the use of superintendents who desire to formulate a course of study in safety that shall create in the child's mind, not a sense of fear and dread, but an attitude of prudence and caution toward the hazards that he meets in his daily life, together with an appreciation of the safeguards with which a friendly neighborhood attempts to insure his safety and welfare. This bulletin contains the following: (1) Letter of transmittal; (2) Introduction; (3) The organisation of committee and their work; (4) Determining objectives in safety education; (5) The selection and organisation of activities for developing habits of safety; (6) The administration of safety programs; (7) Bibliography on safety education; and (8) List of city courses of study in safety. A bibliography is included. (Contains 3 tables.) Individual sections contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
