College News and Departmental Notes: Teachers College Establishes a New Experimental School


by Departmental notes - 1917

The General Education Board, founded by John D. Rockefeller, has agreed to provide Teachers College with the funds necessary to establish and conduct a school for the purpose of scientific experimentation and constructive work in the reorganization of elementary and secondary education. The school will be opened next fall with accommodations for from 150 to 200 pupils. During the first few years it will carry out cautious experiments with a view to the improvement of the subject matter to be taught, so that the curriculum may be better adapted to the needs of the life of to-day than the one now in common use. There will be constant cooperation between the faculty of the school and the faculty of Teachers College, thus insuring a careful study of every experiment made. This arrangement will make for carefully considered and continuous progress toward the goal for which the school is established.
