ABSTRACT
This article discusses how the secondary schools in the U.S. can actually meet the needs of today. McKinley High School in Honolulu, Hawaii, has been using some different processes towards a better teaching of democratic citizenship for last sixteen years. During the period 1928 to 1931 there was a growing conviction among some McKinley teachers that the high schools should be making a more positive contribution toward the development of citizens in a democratic society. The first significant step in the direction of fundamental reconstruction was the establishing of several experimental core classes during the year 1930-31. Later it was decided that the entire sophomore class should be brought in on the new program. In order to bring the students into the program, a number of devices were developed. Each core studies class was organized as a local unit of the school government with its officers and representatives taking part in class and school representative assemblies. An important phase of student-teacher participation is the course of study planning at the beginning of the year. This sort of cooperative activity reaches into all phases of the school. Later a study, conducted by the local university, showed that McKinley graduates at the university did slightly better on the average than the average for all students.
