1948 Norwood School Report:
In recent years, the appalling loss of life due to preventable accidents on the part of teenagers has focused attention on the need for safety education in the schools. To supplement our fifteen hour classroom course in safety required of all tenth grade students, this year for the first time behind-the-wheel driver training was made available to all students in the school who had reached their sixteenth birthday.
A new Plymouth sedan for use in this driver training was made available to the School Department at the nominal cost of $1 through the cooperation of Sansone Motors of Norwood. Excellent instructional results are being achieved both in the classroom and on the road, and I am happy to report that the Hon. Rudolph F. King, Registrar of Motor Vehicles, on the occasion of a recent visit to the School commented most favorably on our Safety Education program.
