Since public education has become a privilege for everyone, there has been a gradual change in the school systems and teaching techinques. The ideas of school, the relationship of school to the overall development of the individual and how the child learns have been in the educational spotlight for the past few years.
Teachers and parents often can not understand the development or the mental and physical growth of children in their relationship to school work. In recent years studies have been made concerning the various aspects of the child's development in various subjects. As new facts and new techniques of teaching come forth and new problems present themselves, no doubt there will be more and more experiments to help this progression of betterment and to help solve the problems which arise.
