Excerpt from School Grounds: Their Design and Development Modern education seeks to contribute to the expansion of the life of the child by providing an environment of beauty - buildings of pleasing architecture and grounds with the charm of landscape gardening. Our school grounds should be attractive, placed where they will conveniently serve their tributary districts according to the best standards of city planning, large enough and of such well chosen topography as to provide amply for playgrounds, parking, borders, and gardens, all so judiciously planned, that their orderliness and obvious wisdom of arrangement become elements of beauty in the unity of the whole.
