College News and Departmental Notes: Secondary Education
by Departmental notes - 1918
A conference of representative schoolmen was called by Commissioner P. P. Claxton in May, to make recommendations on the teaching of science and industrial arts in secondary schools during the war emergency. Professor Caldwell, Professor Briggs, and Dr. G. R. Teviss were members of the science committee, and Dr. W. T. Bawden was chairman of the industrial arts committee. The reports were published in the first issue of the United States Bureau of Education magazine School Life, and this was distributed to all the schools in the country. Dr. Claxton believes the report will materially influence the teaching of science and industrial arts not only during the war but afterwards as well.
