Practical Edaeatfaa Desaaaded.
The school, particularly the high
school, which fills students' minds with
knowledge of conditions IS centuries
old, while knowledge of the present
and of bow to earn a living Is left to
be picked up haphazard was declared
altogether too typical.
President Felmley, of Illinois State
Normal University, who read the re
port, declared that the ambition of
school boards to remain on the accred
ited list of the universities waa large
ly responsible for the situation. The
big Eastern "universities, he said, by
drawing students from all parts of the
country, exerted Influence far out of
proportion to the number of students
they educate, and their tendency waa
to hold the schools back to the educa
tlonal Ideals of half a century or more
"The school," said President Felm
ley, "should not set Itself up as the one
Institution to which all else should
bend its calendar and programme. The
great trouble with our school methods
has been that our studies have been
things apart from' the daily life and
experience of the pupil."

These "vision specialists" are plon
