ABSTRACT
The article reports that the National Association Secondary-School Principals' (NASSP) Curriculum Planning and Development Committee has consistently supported and endorsed the comprehensive secondary school's major project for 1961-1962 in the U.S. Such move is due to a belief that the school is the best hope for fulfilling the American ideal of adequate educational opportunities for all youth, and that the most effective leadership in the improvement of a curriculum is the principal of every school as he organizes his faculty, student body, and his community to meet the needs of the students. The NASSP support the principal by providing curriculum position papers.
