Excerpt from Parent-Teacher Assoications in Rural and Village SchoolsOf this bulletin it may be said it carries to the right people the right message at the right time from the right woman.Addressed to rural communities it goes to the right people because, while so much has been written and published for urban communities that is suitable only for solution of urban problems and can be effectively practiced only under urban conditions, comparatively little has been prepared for the problems and conditions of rural life. This bulletin is designed to meet just those problems and conditions that distinguish rural from urban communities, and is therefore a valuable contribution to a national need for which so few well-considered and useful contributions have been made.It carries the right message because it lays special stress upon the importance of health and the need of improving rural conditions in the direction of better sanitary customs, regulations and equipment. It will not be easy to provide in the country districts the sanitary plumbing, draining, sewerage and water supply of cities; neither is it possible to obtain in some rural communities the prompt attendance, counsel and supervision of doctors and health officers. Nevertheless much can be done and will be done when a majority of the people of the rural districts have a clear understanding of the causes of disease and of the best methods of preventing them.The health of children brought up in the open air of the fields and woods of the countrysides should, in the nature of things, be better and more secure than that of city children, but statistics show a contrary condition. It is therefore evident that the benefits of open spaces and healthful exercise are more than counterbalanced by neglect of simple principles of health that science has long since discovered and which should be known and heeded everywhere.This bulletin by its suggestions of conferences on such subjects will help to that end and serve not only to brighten the minds but to strengthen the bodies through which the mind has to act in all the ways of life.The message comes from the right woman. Mrs. Lura Sawyer Oak has learned the conditions and the problems of rural communities through the threefold experience of life, labor and love. She has lived in them, she has labored in them, she has loved them. Her teaching is drawn from the experiences of an active life, from the services of arduous work faithfully done, and from a love universally comprehensive in its sympathies.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
