THE ideals of democratic government and democratic education ,,,,"§§E“"““ °°"°°"°° were planted simultaneously in our country. The fathers rightly P¤*¤'*°· believed that only a people trained to vision of public needs and duties could develop and maintain the institutions of popular government. The system of universal education, established m the beginnings, has developed with the countxy and become one of the c aracteristic features of our life. In it we have laid the foundation of that system of American culture which has enabled us to absorb and assimilate millions who have come to us from many countries, bringing the traditions of widely varying institutions. In order that we may keep in mind the need constantly to improve our educational system, it IS proposed that the week of December 3-9, inclusive, be set aside or special observance as American Education Week. It is recommended to the Governors of the States that they cooperate with the educational and civic authorities of their commonwealths to make the week a period for revival of interest in the broad work of national education.
