A DEFENSE OF THE TRACK SYSTEM.
HANSEN, CARL F.
THE TRACK SYSTEM, ORGANIZED TO GIVE EVERY PUPIL A CHANCE FOR MAXIMUM SELF-FULFILLMENT, IS DISCUSSED. ABILITY GROUPING IS USED, SO IT IS BEST TO BE AWARE OF IT AND SYSTEMATIZE IT. SPECIAL PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR ALL EDUCABLE PUPILS WHO DEVIATE WIDELY FROM THE NORM EITHER AS GIFTED OR SLOW. THE TRACK SYSTEM IMPROVES UPON THE ABILITY GROUPING PROCEDURES IT SUPERSEDED. IT ALLOWS FOR CONTINUITY, EMPHASIS UPON COUNSELING, A CHANCE FOR ACADEMIC SUCCESS FOR EVERY PUPIL, BETTER TEACHABILITY IN CLASS STRUCTURE, EMPHASIS UPON SPECIALIZATION IN TEACHER TRAINING, CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT, AND FLEXIBILITY IN PUPIL PROGRAMING. THE TRACK SYSTEM STIMULATES THE ESTABLISHMENT AND MAINTENANCE OF HIGH ACADEMIC STANDARDS. IT ALSO PROVIDES A CONTINUOUS EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT ACHIEVE AT STANDARD LEVELS AND CONTRIBUTES SIGNIFICANTLY TO A REDUCTION IN THE DROPOUT RATE. THE PROBLEMS OF THE TRACK SYSTEM ARE THOSE OF OPERATION AND RESOURCES RATHER THAN THOSE OF WEAKNESS IN PRINCIPLE. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN INTEGRATED EDUCATION, ISSUE 9, JUNE 1964.
