Why the Changes in Our School
What shall we teach which will
make every child self supporting,
leisure utilizing and democracy
loving whether he is rich or poor,
bright or dull?
Every child needs the basic three
"r's," reading, writing and arithme
tic. In addition they need a great
deal more if they are to make satis
factory adjustments to an increas
ingly complex world around them.
A number of basic skills, know
ledge, attitudes and appreciations
seem to be absolute necessities in
our life today. The parents and the
educators must of necessity be in
tensely interested in what these es
sential attitudes, apprecia t i o n s,
knowledges, skills and attitudes are
as well as how they can best be
taught if each individual child is to
get the most from his schooling.
A great deal of research and study
both on the part of educators and
interested laymen has and is re
sulting in many changes from the
traditional school as experienced by
the average parent when he was in
On the average we find that about
80 percent of our high school grad
uates 'do not go on to higher insti
tutions of learning. This points out
the need of recognizing the high
school as the terminal point in their
formal schooling. Noticeable results
are indicated by the swing of em
phasis away from the traditional
college preparatory courses for a
large percentage of students toward
preparation for living now.
Traditional subject matter fields
are being reexamined in the light
of present day nees and dead
wood" is being eliminated. Some
entirely new courses are being add
ed and some older courses are be
ing eliminated. However, the tran
sition must be slow and careful if
we are to retain all of the good of
the old curriculum and graually add
the new materials that are proved
to be essential.
We must all, parents, teachers
and pupils willingly and conscien
tiously accept the newer courses in
order that we keep our schools ab
reast of the changes necessary to
meet the problems of individual dif
ferences and a changing economic
set-up. It seems to be the educators
job to explain why these changes
must take place so that we can
all understand and appreciate them.
As life becomes more complex the
part played by education must be
come more and more important if
the youth is to be prepared to take
his place in the world.
