ABSTRACT
The article discusses the problems of setting up a training school in the light of its purpose, its relation to other departments of the normal school and its direct relation to the student teacher. The training school's relation to the course of the study and its relation to the child who will attend it are likewise discussed. Training school would serve as place of application of the theory learned in the classroom, for example, for the would-be-teachers. The author contested that the teaching act is not learned in the training school since would-be-teachers are asked to teach subject matter they have inadequate knowledge of and that the challenges posed by assimilating knowledge to a child vary. According to the author, the art of teaching cannot be taught, the students must have first sufficient knowledge of the principles in order to make a direct application of them similar to the training of the would-be-doctor. As stated, teaching does not only involve knowledge of the thing being taught or knowledge of the child activity but also an acquired ability to adjust the subject-matter to the child's interest and powers.
