This book follows the pattern of Byrd's health education yearbooks, since it is made of abstracts of the important recent literature. It consists of 400 items taken from school health literature of the past 10 years. Abstracts are from a paragraph to a page in length and are classified into 20 chapters for easy reference. This book should be useful to physicians and educators actively engaged in school health work as a ready reference on currently accepted policies and practices. It should also help those interested but not actively engaged in school health activities to obtain authoritative information on school health problems that they may encounter. Each chapter is prefaced by a page or two of concise discussion outlining prevalent attitudes on the subject of the discussion. These in turn are expanded in the abstracts that follow. Each abstract is numbered and titled and contains the name of the original
