Excerpt from Department of the Interior Bureau of Education Bulletin, 1917, Vol. 25: Military Training of Youths of School Age in Foreign Countries
Military training may present, as regards hygiene, serious inconveniences; it implies rigid discipline, which is condemned by true pedagogy. Outside of that it produces results that are only partial, limited, and special.
This opinion relates to military training regarded as a method of physical education. But by the same authority military instruction is termed a work of urgent. Interest to the country and to all young citizens.
These quotations represent fairly the attitude of enlightened and patriotic French opinion.
