Education Digest;Oct1936, Vol. 2 Issue 2, p40
The article investigates whether secondary education in the United States will present only organized knowledge or will it assume responsibility for attitudes and ideals. It presents the pros and cons of the two alternative roles of secondary education. It also cites barriers to carrying out plans to help children to develop desirable attitudes and ideals. The article also suggests ways to develop desired attitudes and ideals without additional expense. Some of these include: school administrators should recognize that secondary education must plan as definitely for the development of desired attitudes and ideals as for instruction in organized knowledge; experiences and activities can be provided from which the attitudes and ideals basic for intelligent participation in a changing democracy may be expected to develop and cooperation should be sought with all other agencies interested in the establishment of attitudes and ideals.
