College Course Helps Janitors Brush Up (Oct, 1940)

Those are some well-dressed janitors.

College Course Helps Janitors Brush Up
A COLLEGE course for school janitors is a novel addition to the curriculum of Teacher’s College, Columbia University, in New York City. Given under the supervision of Dr. Henry H. Linn, once a janitor himself and now superintendent of grounds and buildings at the school, the intensive course runs for five days and includes instruction in the best methods of sweeping floors, polishing furniture, cleaning woodwork, and operating coal and oil-burning furnaces. Round-table discussions and student-teacher consultations are held.

    Considering some of the part-time high schoolers I’ve had to work with over the years I wish there was a required class like this in all middle schools.
