College News and Departmental Notes: Rural Education

by Departmental notes - 1920

RURAL LIFE CONFERENCE. A Rural Life Conference is now a regular feature of the fourth week of the Teachers College summer school. This year the conference dates fall on July 30 and 31. Three sessions will be held, one on Friday afternoon, another Friday evening, and the third on Saturday morning, with a Rural Education luncheon as a concluding feature on Saturday noon. The program for the opening session of the Rural Conference this year will center around the American village problem and the village church problem as presented through the findings and surveys of the Interchurch World Movement. Friday evening will be devoted to a presentation and discussion of rural folksongs by Mrs. Rose Huff Morgan, wife of Professor O. S. Morgan, of the department of agriculture, Columbia University. The last session on Saturday morning will deal more specifically with the problems of rural education and county school administration. Among the speakers already engaged or invited for this conference are: Professors Paul L. Voght and C. J. Galpin, sociologists; Dr. Edmund de S. Brunner, of the Interchurch World Movement; Dr. Thomas E. Finegan, commissioner of education for Pennsylvania; Dr. Abraham Flexner, of the General Education Board, New York City; Dr. M. B. Hillegas, commissioner of education for Vermont, and Professor O. G. Brim, of Cornell College of Agriculture, Ithaca, New York.
