ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the improvement of education system in the U.S. A lot of people throughout the county are stewing over the same curriculum problems, and that some of us have pretty good answers those others can use. It means that a better curriculum can be planned in terms of the kind of world we live in, the needs of boys and girls that people are taught, and the democratic values we believe in. This can be done more effectively by teachers working at a professional level in their own communities than it can by experts handing down the "word from on high." It means that what happens during music period is important during science nod, and that what happens at home is important at school. It means that parents, trustees, administrators, teachers and county staff members all are working toward the same goals, and that people can get there faster if they work together." the San Diego County Curriculum Planning Committee (CPC) works very closely with the County Board of Education, the policy-making body for the county. For example, CPC recommended to the County Board that the San Diego County schools should participate in the Child Study Project, under the direction of Daniel Prescott, of the University of Maryland.
