Reseña del editor
In 1913, at the suggestion of Hon. M. P. Shawkey, State Superintendent of Schools of West Virginia, I prepared AH andbook for Community Meetings at Rural Schoolhouses, for the use of West Virginia teachers in a campaign for reviving community social life, particularly in rural and village communities. Soon after this handbook was issued, Dr. P. P. Claxton requested, and was furnished, thirty-five hundred copies for distribution among the county superintendents of the United States. The continued demand for this handbook has been such that finally the editor of this series requested me to prepare the manuscript of a book on the community center, for teachers and educators interested in this movement, which should cover the entire field in a more comprehensive way. Briefly stated, the book undertakes to present some of the more important rural life problems, particularly as regards rural social life and recreation, and to offer suggestions as to how the teacher, by means of the school as a community center, may contribute very largely to the solution of these problems.
