The term "model" school has two meanings. One is that which relates to an elementary school, sometimes a secondary school, connected more or less intimately with the professional work of a normal school, or training school for teachers. The other refers to a school which presumes to show the efficiency of certain educational theories and to increase the efficiency of the schools of the state, nation or empire by setting an example. This study has been mainly from the point of view of one interested in setting an example for other schools; but some of the schools connected with institutions for the training of teachers have embraced the function of the latter type involves a study of the other.
