Prepared in cooperation with superintendents of a number of city school systems, the first edition of An Educational Platform for the Public Schools was produced in 1957 by G. H.

Updated section titles include: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Purposes and Responsibilities of Education and the Schools"; (3) "School Organization: Program and Curriculum"; (4) "Adaption to Individual Differences: Instructional-Learning Procedures"; (5) "Administration, Leadership, and the Teacher"; and (6) "The Role of Science and Research: Values and Issues."
