Open-Air Schools: Part 2. Historical Sketch

by Siegried Maia Hansen Upton - 1914

These children could not keep up with the work of the regular school and yet they were not so mentally deficient that they were fit subjects for instruction of the kind given to subnormal children. The treatment consisted of an outdoor life, plenty of good food, strict cleanliness, warm and suitable clothing, and school work modified in kind and reduced in quantity to suit the new conditions.
