Health and Education

Health and Education.

It is a proof of the perversity of human nature that it is still necessary to discuss the relation between Education and Health. . . . Complete health—good, strong physical, mental, and moral health—is an acquisition more desirable than anything else, and therefore, if the community were guided by intelligence . . . the attainment of complete health by all persons would be the one object of all education systems. . . . For the ordinary family, lack of physical health means unemployableness and morbid thought and feeling; and unemployableness and morbid thought and feeling mean loafing, vice, crime.—Mr T. C. Horsfall, in 'Contemporary Review,' March, 1906.
