leading purpose is to afford an opportunity for observation and practice
teaching in the schoolroom. It is here that theory and practice
meet, and consequently the work of the practice school should test the
ability of the student teacher to do successful work in the public
schools of Texas. As far as possible the aim is to make the school
fulfill a double function in being both a model and a training school.
An attempt is made to keep abreast of the time in all that pertains to
the interest of the children who constitute the school. Special attention
is given to planning and execution, the keeping of records,
and the general management of the different grades. All work is done
under the general direction of the superintendent, who is the executive
of the department and under the immediate direction of the critic
teachers, who supervise and direct the work of the student teachers.
