Excerpt from The Normal School Bulletin, Vol. 10: October 1, 1904
The other educational influences that are at work during at least four-fifths of the waking hours of the child are the father and mother in the home, the natural surroundings and the community life, with its many industrial, commer cial, political, social, and religious phases. Tparents and guardians, not teachers, are responsible for the children's companionship out of school; responsible for the manner in which they spend their time, for what they read, the games they play, and the whole warp and woof of the children's physical, mental, and moral life when not in the school room. The fortuitous education of natural environment and social experience is indirect but powerful. The home and school, the largest factors in the child's education, should certainly co-operate in molding all other inﬂuences.
