TEACH THE TEACHERS
The September number of the Bulletin of the North Carolina Board of Health is a teachers' edition, specially prepared for the instruction of the public school teachers of the state. It contains articles on the importance of the recognition of physically defective children, the movement for oral hygiene in the public schools and its importance, the medical inspection of public school children, the value of science teaching in the grades and high schools, and the relation of childhood and youth to public health. Illustrations show the dangers of the common drinking-cup. Such bulletins issued under the authority of the state board of health and distributed to school teachers, parents, and pupils of the high schools are a most valuable means of public instruction on sanitary and hygienic questions.
