More Stress on

Rising, Dr. Wilker Says
Sympathetic Approach to
Study of Field Compara-
tively New, She Says
"There seems to be a growing be-
lief that the public school can, by
acquaintance with the subject mat-
ter of parent education, become
more and more 'parent-minded' and
grow in ability to work with parents
in making provisions for the actual
needs of the whole child," said Dr.
Marguerite Wilker yesterday in a
talk on "What Can the Public
School Do In Parent Education?"
"Some public schools stand ready
to adjust their school schedules and
eliminate some academic work in or-
der to free timne for teacher-parent
contacts," she continued.
"When we iook around to see what
is being done, we find a wide variety
of programs.' We 'realize that the
term 'parent education' has been
coined within the last ten yearsand
indicates that for the" first time in
history the problems in this field are
being more or less systematically ap-
proached in study.
"School preoccupation with sub-
ject matter has led to an interest in
the academic child who is measured
in terms of reading, writing and ari-
thmetic. Home preoccupation with
care has led to an irerest in a dif-
terent child, eating, dressing, 'rest-
ing, adjut ting to adults and- other
children in many practical and so-
cial situations. Here we have an
academic child on the one hand and
a home child on the other, and no
one actually interested in the whole

"Many public school workers are
reading more widely the subject

able source material."

Changing conditions in civiliza-
tion require shifts in the emphasis
in character -education, Dr. Paul
Rankin, supervising director of the
department of research and adjust-
ment in the Detroit school system,
told educators here yesterday after-
noon in a discussion of the funda-
mental concepts on which the .1932
Yearbook of the department of su-
perintendence was based.
While character education 'is a
co-oberative enterprise between the
school, the home and the commu-
nity, the school should be the leader,
Dr. Rankin declared.
The Yearbook recognized that
character education is primarily the
development of attitudes, ideals and
motives, and only secondarily the
development of knowledge and'skills,
Dr. Rankin said. Character is more
than the avoidance of wrong-doing;
it involves an active concern for
social welfare, he declared.
Choice of methods, content, or-
ganization and administration of
character education should be basecd
on findings of research, he said, and
the school should give pupils fre-
quent practice in meeting real prob-
lems in human relations.

The volatilization problem is largely overcome by the use of gas heat; and (a
