Organization and Administration of School Health Work. Bulletin, 1939, No. 12

This bulletin brings to its readers a discussion presented with a view to focusing attention upon this very important educational field of school health work. In Part I, Commissioner Studebaker discusses General Administrative Policies, including the relation of health education to public administration. Sections appearing in Part I include: (1) Meeting developmental needs; (2) Noneducational service functions; (3) Schools must be free; (4) Specialization of function; (5) Community health council; and (6) Development of cooperation. The multiple relationships which need to be established in the adequate development of a school health program are presented by Dr. Fred Moore in Part II, as they have been worked out for one school system. Topics covered in this section include: (1) Responsibility of school authorities; (2) Activities within the school organization; and (3) Activities outside the school organization. As yet there has been little opportunity for directors of such programs to secure anything like adequate training for their highly important and exacting tasks. Nor have procedures which were the product of trial and error often been recorded for the benefit of others. The account given by Dr. Moore presents in considerable detail advantages of organization and direction within the school. (Contains 2 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
