School of Society Study

IN certain parts of India public enthusiasm has been roused to the necessity of organising social service in various forms to succour those stranded in the struggle and competition of modern life. But no school has, so far as we know, been yet started to study the problems connected with social service and to train men for it. Such a school was opened at Edinburgh on the 11th January 1918 by the Secretary for Scotland. The movement was initiated by the local University in March last year, but its completion was possible through the co-operation of municipal, educational and mercantile bodies. The object of the school is to furnish social workers and administrators with adequate knowledge and experience of social problems. Social ethics, economic, personal and public hygienic are taught for two years.
