ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the need of improvement in the education sector. The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) has tried to give reality, in the working life of schools, to what is known, thus far, about the ways in which individuals may grow most effectively through participative opportunities provided them to work responsibly in groups that confront common problems and share a concern to reach solutions on which they may stand together--and then grow further from this base. It is continuing, through its board of directors, its executive committee, its committees and commissions, and its membership at large, to explore critically all areas of educational experience in ways that will increase the ability of those who are responsible for curriculum development and supervision to provide creative leadership for all who give the educative process its character and quality-boards of education, school architects, parents, administrators and the status leaders who represent them, and, finally, the teachers in whose hands rests the basic responsibility for transforming education. The ASCD has a right to a proper pride for having shouldered such responsibilities. Curricula have a way bf continuing the pat- terns of the past. Teaching methods, often seeming to be different on the surface, manage to maintain a relationship to ends for which they are not, in fact, appropriate means.
