One of the most important factors in the education of children is the establishment of their physical health, without which all learning and training must have less value for the individual and for society than they would have with it. Implicitly in the act creating the Bureau of Education and explicitly in recent acts of Congress, investigations in regard to the health of children, the publication of the results of these investigations, and giving such information as will help teachers and school officers in solving the problems of school hygiene and sanitation are made functions of the bureau. The three papers transmitted herewith, written by F. B. Dresslar, Ph. D., specialist in school hygiene and sanitation in the Bureau of Education; Thomas D. Wood, M. D., professor of physical education in Columbia University;. and Charles E. North, M. D., of New York City, in a very effective way to call the attention of teachers, school officers, and parents to the importance of the health of children, and offer many valuable practical suggestions as to the means of preserving it.
