(Conditions Reflect Social
Variations, He SaysN
"Foreign educational conditions re-
flect the differences in social life
between, America and Europe." de-
clared Dr. S. A. Courtis, of the'edu-
cation school, yesterday in 'a lecture
on "International Comparisons in
[Child Development," He presented
data secured to represent a chance
sampling of conditions in the public
schools of different countries.}
"The buildings," he said, "were
without exception less perfectly
adapted to educational purposes than
those built in America the last ten
years, and had much mnore meager
equipmnen tand comforts . The text-
books and teaching universally con-
formed in an older type than that
generally prevalent in the public
schools in our larger cities. \
"The problems of management,
supervision, and personnel seemed to
be very exactly the same as in this
country, complicated by one addi-
tional factor less evident in America,
namely caste. Of the four countries
visited, Italy had made and was

making the most effort to modernize
her schools, and the Scottish schools
proved nearest to American schools
in spirit.
"In all countries the problem of in-
dividual differences was being given
special attention, and well it is that
it should be; for the individual dif-
ferences that might be ascribed to
national or climatic conditions."
Between February and June, 1931,
about 14,000 children were measured
with respect to height, weight, stand-
ing broad jump, eruption of perma-
nent teeth, mental ability and spell-
ing in the cities of Rome, Geneva,
Ipondon and Dumfermline, Soot-
land. Similar data was available
from the schools of Detroit. The
purpose of the study was to compare
the growth curves of the children
in these. different countries to see
'whether or not their developmental
differences result from the marked
difference in climatic and cultural
"The study was not undertaken,"
Dr. Courtis said, "for the purpose of
determining the relative efficiency of
instruction in America and in for-
eign schools and and in no sense is
a survey of foreign education."
