The article examines the startling relationship between forward looking woman educator Flora White and the U.S.based psychologist G. Stanley Hall both of whom perceived educational issues differently. It mentions that notwithstanding opposing educational philosophies, Hall supported White's endeavor of setting up Miss White's Home School in Concord, Massachusetts. It mentions that post the publication of Hall's book "Adolescence" there emerged differences between Hall and White on gender issues but their bond never turned schism. It mentions that Hall also pioneered the child-study movement and also showed interest in the study titled "The Contents of Children's Minds," revealing that 65 and 55 percent of children did not know the concept of ants and wooden objects.
