"This work has been prepared as a textbook in school hygiene for the use of normal schools, colleges, and teachers' reading circles. It has been shaped by the conviction that the primary concern of such a text should be the child itself--the hygiene of physical and mental growth, rather than the details of school architecture and school equipment. New problems, new methods, and new centers of interest have appeared since the first edition of this book. Mental hygiene has made rapid strides, and is in a fair way of becoming a science. A serious attempt has been made to reflect these changes and progress in this revision. The book has been largely rewritten and made over. Facts and figures have been revised and new data added to bring the text up to the present state of our knowledge. The bibliographies are new, and, while selective rather than exhaustive, they contain a considerable sampling of the latest, most authentic, and most promising work. The materials in the chapters on "The Headaches of School Children," and "The Nervous Child," did net appear in the original edition. New chapters have been included on "Mortality and Morbidity," "The Health of the Teacher," "Hygiene of the Schoolroom," and "The Teaching of Physiology and Hygiene." Two chapters have been dropped--one on "The Significance of Physiological Age," another on "The Harmful Effects of School Life"; the first because it is of doubtful pedagogical importance, and the second because its topics now are treated in connection with other chapters. In line with other texts in the series, there has been added, at the close of each chapter, a collection of teaching helps in the form of topics for report and discussion, and exercises and problems for review, drill, and study.
