This book, published during the post-war years of the 1950's, offers an historical perspective of suggested policies for improving secondary education and provides details on how the policies and principles could be practiced on the state and local levels. Chapters 1 and 2 discuss the developmental state of American secondary education in the 1950's and the responsibilities of the secondary school brought about by uncertain national and world conditions in the post-World War ii years. Characteristics of the youth of this era are discussed in Chapter 3. Chapters 4-9 describe plans for schools of the future. These samples of the many different possible solutions to the problem of meeting the educational needs of youth are intended to stimulate and aid planning and action already underway in many communities.

Universal opportunity for education beyond the high school by Educational Policies Commission( Book )

7 editions published between 1964 and 1980 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If individual freedom is the American ideal, then the common practice of universal education only through secondary school is inadequate. As a matter of policy, the nation should accept the responsibility of providing all citizens with at least some form of further education that contributes toward freeing the mind. In considering future policies and facilities, the proper question to ask is "Whom can the society, in conscience and self-interest, exclude?" Although personal awareness cannot be completely achieved by years of college, it doesn't seem possible to promote self-sustaining progress toward intellectual freedom in less than that. With increased expenditures for higher education, the public will likely insist that subjects in the curriculum be useful. Because general education aimed at developing conceptual thinking has more lasting utility than training in specific skills which soon become obsolete, the theoretical aspects of all courses should be emphasized. To enhance the curriculum's sensitivity to individual growth, the faculty must be of high quality. Steps should be taken to obtain more teachers who are generalists and who value teaching, and to raise their status both by increasing salaries and defending intellectual values to the outside society. Better preparation for college can be facilitated by effective communication between secondary and college levels and by public understanding and support. Opportunities for education should be both flexible and readily accessible. Being nonselective, these 2-year colleges will be public, but various financing measures for students are still needed.
