The Future Challenges Secondary Education

Moffat, Maurice P.; Rich, Stephen G.
April 1957
Education Digest;Apr1957, Vol. 22 Issue 8, p12
The article addresses issues and future challenges of education, particularly secondary education, in the U.S. According to the author, as education is destined to assume greater responsibilities, construction of a program in which teachers will always be alert to add desirable material is necessary. Consideration of some type of core arrangement in instructional programs which will give fullness to instructional patterns and serve to broaden each student's concept of living effectively in the society is also important. With the problems and rapid changes facing secondary education, it is emphasized that cooperation from outside of education as a profession, and in particular from the resources of industries and business, is essential in shaping secondary education for the future.
