''The O School'' (Pathfinder Magazine, 1950)

The Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School in Chicago turned some heads when it first opened. As you read the attached column you will learn about the unorthodox approach they bring to the subject of educating the autistic and the emotionally disturbed. With the fullness of time it has been revealed that they must be doing something right - it has been in business since 1944.


Schools Should Not Fly ''An Emblem Of War'' (Literary Digest, 1929)

Here is one from the "everything old is new again" collection. This 1929 article asks whether it was appropriate for schools to fly the American flag, believing as the the author did, that the starry banner is "an emblem of war".


The Onslaught of Standardized Tests (World Week, 1958)

Written in 1958 with the aid of the Educational Testing Service, (Princeton, New Jersey), the article attempted to persuade America's high school students to get used to standardized tests because they're a really cool idea and they'll make your life better. Illustrations are provided to indicate how the testing work and how well such tests had proved useful to the Air Force in weeding out sub-standard candidates for flight training. The journalist seemed to imply throughout these columns that the egg-heads were really doing us all a big, big favor by creating these tests.


E-Learning in the Fifties (Pageant Magazine, 1958)

This article from the late Fifties refers to the educational benefits that existed in the form of tape recordings, television, films and slide shows and what a glorious discovery it was that they came along when they did to aid in the teacher shortages of the time. Today we have decades of studies that show what among these tools has been useful and what has failed.

In the 1940s Color TV was Anticipated as a Tool with Which Art Students Could Learn...


The W.W. II Teacher Shortage (Click Magazine, 1944)

This 1944 article by the U.S. Commissioner of Education, John W. Studebaker (1887 1989), reported on the impact that W.W. II was having on the American educational system. Studebaker pointed out that during the course of the national emergency, as many as 115,000 teachers had left the nation's classrooms in order to help the war effort in one form or another:

"Every community can testify to the competent and unselfish job teachers have done both at their posts and in voluntary wartime tasks of rationing, salvaging and bond sales. But the fact remains that at this critical time in our history between 20,000 and 25,000 positions have been abandoned and thousands of classes are overcrowded. Look at these figures:
in October, 1939, there were practically no teaching jobs vacant. In October, 1943 there were 7,700, and in addition , about 57,000 more positions had to be filled by teachers who could not meet the regular certification requirements."


American Schools During the Great Depression (Pathfinder Magazine, 1940)

This is a portion of a longer article about American children and their collective sufferings during the Great Depression that can be read here. The column attached pertains to a White House conference and the sorry state of American schools in 1940.
