Excerpt from The Classroom Teacher, at Work in American Schools
The purpose of a professional book is the improvement of the practice of those who work in the field which it explores. The books to be issued in the American Education Series will, in every case, seek to meet this standard. The ground to be covered extends from the work of a teacher in a one-room rural school to that of a superintendent of schools in a large city or a commissioner of education in a great state. Scientific fields which contribute most largely to professional practice will be considered, as will also special problems connected with teaching practice. The history and philosophy of education will be interpreted, since they enable the teacher to understand better our modern educational practice and to work more efficiently because of his added understanding of the significance of his work as related to the society which he serves.
There is no reason to classify books as of higher or lower degree in a professional series. The teaching of beginning reading, the standards to be maintained in erecting school buildings and in their equipment, the organization of the supervisory and administrative staff, the control of public schools by a board of education that operates under a state law - all are important in the equipment of a teacher charged with the education of a child in the first grade.
