THE NEGLECTED MAJORITY.
HOWE, HAROLD, II
THIS SPEECH EXAMINES THE STATE OF SECONDARY EDUCATION IN THE UNITED STATES, AND NOTES THAT THERE IS A NEED FOR GREATER CONCERN FOR THE EDUCATION OF STUDENTS WHO ARE NOT COLLEGE BOUND. THE NEW FEDERAL PROGRAMS FOR EDUCATION CAN ENABLE SCHOOL SYSTEMS TO REMEDIATE THE EDUCATIONAL DEFICITS OF DISADVANTAGED SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS. EDUCATION FOR THE DISADVANTAGED CAN ALSO BE HELPED BY EDUCATORS' EFFORTS TO INCREASE THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF SLUM YOUTH AND TO REVERSE CURRENT PREFERENTIAL TEACHER PLACEMENT POLICIES WHICH ASSIGN THE LEAST EXPERIENCED TEACHERS TO THE MORE DIFFICULT SCHOOLS. SPECIALIZED TRAINING FOR PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS OF THE DISADVANTAGED IS FELT TO BE IMPORTANT. ALSO, JOB TRAINING AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION ARE IMPERATIVE FOR THOSE STUDENTS WHO DO NOT AND WILL NOT HAVE A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA. VOCATIONAL EDUCATION CURRICULUMS OUGHT TO BE RENOVATED TO CREATE AN ATTITUDE OF RESPECT FOR VOCATIONAL TRAINING. IT IS FELT, MOREOVER, THAT THE IDEAL IN SECONDARY EDUCATION IS THE COMPREHENSIVE HIGH SCHOOL. THIS PAPER IS AN ADRESS PRESENTED BEFORE THE ANNUAL CONVENTION OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SECONDARY SCHOOL PRINCIPALS (DALLAS, TEXAS, MARCH 1, 1967). (NH)
