The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 78

Health and Education

Health and Education.

Mr Horsfall, writing in the 'Contem porary Review' for March on 'Health and Education,' says :—

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 educational systems. . . For the ordinary family lack of physical health and strength "means unemployableness and morbid thought and feeling; and unemployableness and morhid thought and feeling mean loafing, vice, crime.
