Editorial Reviews


"This book adds an important dimension to our understanding of children’s health and the contested role of the state in providing health services to needy populations. Meckel illuminates the sometimes promising, sometimes disappointing evolution of school health in America during a critical period of growing public institutions, philanthropies, and private entities."
(Alexandra Minna Stern University of Michigan 2013-02-08)

"This is the first comprehensive history of public school hygiene in the United States. Meckel skillfully traces the origins and evolution of school health programs and their troubled legacy today."
(Heather Munro Prescott author of Student Bodies: The Influence of Student Health in American Society an 2013-05-21)
