To the Editor.—I should like to applaud the inclusion of the article "An Evaluation of a Summer Remedial Reading Program" in the December 1971 issue of the Journal (122:494-498). I feel that as pediatricians aware of the whole child we should be presented with more material relating to the school and learning. Children spend a great deal of their time in school and as part of our interest in child development we should be informed about and concerned with various aspects of the educational system. We frequently work with the schools regarding patients with learning and/or behavior difficulties and I should like to see more material written in pediatric journals about the schooling process.
I suggest that consideration be given to a separate, periodically-appearing section in pediatric journals that would include both original research and review articles concerning learning processes, methods of teaching, education systems, and behavioral and learning
