Excerpt from Open Air Schools
About the year 1904 the school authorities Of Berlin, Germany, became aware that there was an unusually large number of children retarded in the grades of the public schools. Medical examination showed that these children were victims of some phy... sical defect, - poor sight and hearing, tuberculosis, anaemia, malnutrition, diseased tonsils and adenoids, and chorea being the most common. The salutary effect of open air treatment for tuberculosis had long been known, and the idea of educating the minds of weakly children while curing their bodies was proposed and carried out. In a pine forest outside the city, in the suburb of Charlottenburg, a pavilion was erected, and one hundred and twenty tuberculous children were sent there for the experiment. They stayed all day, received three nourishing meals prepared on the premises, and had rest, play, and study hours. Three months later these children returned to their schools, completely cured.
