Educational Work of South End House
Mr. Robert A. Woods spoke last evening before the Educational Conference in Phillips Brooks House on the educational work of the South End House, of which he is head. Although not an educational institution, the South End House has developed many educational methods which have been put into practice by the city of Boston. Its object is to re-establish the ethical conditions which have been shattered by the tumult of life; and in pursuing this object it has accomplished a great deal in endeavoring to obtain a rational physical development; in attempting to equip boys and girls for their future occupations; and in seeing that the natural ability of able boys and girls in poor circumstances is not wasted. Mr. Woods made an earnest plea for greater statesmanship on the part of future educators.
