High School Psychology: Stepchild or Offspring?
Wertheimer, Michael
High school psychology cannot be considered the offspring of the American Psychological Association (APA) or of legitimate psychology in the United States. Although it originally discouraged the pre-college teaching of psychology, the APA now backs the venture. Improving the teaching of psychology at the high school level began around 1960 and continues in an effort to foster quality instruction and to upgrade the quality of human life by disseminating psychological knowledge in the school systems. International, national, state, local and individual support can be given by coordinating with foreign programs, disseminating information and offering institutional support at a national level, working with state education agencies, cooperating at the local levels with principals, school boards and teachers, and by the efforts of regional organizations and individuals.
