To set up a health program In Livingston Elementary School for teaching health education.
To establish in the children in Livingston Elementary School the habits and principles of living which throughout their school life and later years will insure a better and healthier place to live.
This study of health education in recent years has around more interest than any other branch in the elementary school. The causes for this interest may be summed up in the following facts: that health education has been neglected in many schools and communities, for instance, the children in the Livingston elementary school did not until recently, have a health program to follow. The textbook was placed in the hands of the child with no definite goal in view, so far as establishing the right health habits and attitudes are concerned. What was the cause for such teaching? To many grades for the number of teachers; (2) teaching load too heavy. Another reason why this study is necessary because the health conditions in the community indicated that a health education program should be set up.
