Segel, David – Office of Education, United States Department of the Interior, 1938
Many schools are making changes in their cumulative record systems or are instituting new systems.

The greatest aid to the pupil can be given only when his rate and trend of development in various…

Bailey, Liberty Hyde – Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior, 1908
The most significant contemporaneous movement in education is the effort to adapt the work of schools directly to the lives of the pupils.

Curtis, Henry S. – United States Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior, 1912
The school yard has been one of the least utilized of our educational resources. Surfaced with a view to his convenience and used mostly in accordance with his desires, it has practically belonged to the janitor. In the past 10 years the great play movement has burst upon us and has brought with it an illumination as to the educational value of…

Leiper, M. A. – United States Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior, 1912

The old-time school yard, with its limited space and its restrictive traditions, is entirely unsuited to the new uses demanded by the new ideals, and there is going on everywhere a reconstruction of theory and practice to meet the new requirements. As in all…

Those who work constantly in the fire-prevention field say that adults are not easily educated to the need…
