The public health movement of the early 20th century often focused on improving health education in the schools. First published in 1918, Home and Community Hygene was an early public health text written from "the practical standpoint of the home-maker." This selection uses data to promote the employment of nurses in public schools. It lists standards for rural schools, including light and ventilation of school houses (many rural areas still had one-room schools at this time). There is also a warning about the dangers of swollen adenoids that produce "mouth breathing [which is] injurious to development and health."
