College News and Departmental Notes: Secondary Education

by Departmental notes - 1920

Following a pleasant custom the professors and students interested in secondary education held their opening "get-together meeting and picnic" on the Palisades the second week of the session. There was a one hundred per cent participation: everybody hiked, everybody cooked over the seven cooking fires, everybody was hungry, everybody was in a woodsy, outdoor frame of mind, and after the supper everybody seemed satisfied. Around the camp fire all sang or pantomimed the songs, which were led by Professor Fretwell. Professor Briggs made the only speech of the occasion. He pointed out that in Dr. Sachs, Teachers College had the first professor of secondary education in the world, and showed what is being done and what can be done. Everyone gained a keener vision from his talk, as well as the desire to aid in solving the interesting and increasingly complex problems in the field of secondary education.
