Educational Plans for the American Army Abroad free pdf Excerpt from Educational Plans for the American Army Abroad During the last week in August, 1918, the following cable was received from Edward C. Carter (B.A., Harvard, 1900), the far-sighted Chief Secretary, Y.M.C.A., A.E.F.: "Recruit 600 men teachers as well as organizers in all educational fields, especially History, American and European Institutions, Technical Subjects." The number of men asked for from our colleges and public schools is very moderate in view of the fact that the Army Educational Commission has to provide for the immediate educational needs of an army of 2,000,000 men. The proportion of these eager to pursue some studies in evening hours when at training camps and other places back of the lines, both as a change from military routine and in preparation for life's work on return to America, is much larger than our people at home realize. Army Headquarters in France firmly believes, as will appear in this volume, that an educational program can do much to maintain and stimulate the morale of these men today and that it will be essential to prevent the long period of demobilization from being a period of demoralization. The demand for classes and lectures will, of course, increase enormously when peace comes, but whether this be near or far off, the need of supplying both teachers and textbooks is immediate. The former will be drawn mainly from the Army itself - those sent from this country being employed as supervisors, administrators, and normal teachers. This message, indicating that the time has come for an intensive campaign to secure educational leaders for the American Army abroad, the frequent requests for information from various sources, and the appearance in the daily and periodical press of many inaccurate, incomplete, and unauthorized statements of the Y.M.C.A.'s overseas educational plans have made the publication of this little volume necessary at the present time. The winter - now only two months off - almost always supplies a better educational opportunity than the summer. This general rule holds good in the armies abroad.
