Worries Teachers Should Forget.
Frost, Joe L.
Worries that confront teachers in American schools are discussed, and reasons why these worries should be forgotten are provided. The worries are concerned with: breaking away from normative schemes of childhood education; grade level structure; promotion and retention; letter grades; standard test scores as instructional aids; and the search for THE curriculum, or THE program, or THE philosophy. The teachers' energies should be directed to enhancing the basic principle of individuality by developing programs that are richly varied and strongly rooted in observation and analysis of the child himself.
