Student Activities for Civic Education. New Directions for Student Councils, Number 8.
Robinson, Donald W.
Among the many demands made on secondary schools, none is more important than that of civic education. It has been said that "the wholesome development of the secondary school student cannot be considered aside from the school's obligation to train for American democracy." The American school exists to support the individual and the American way of life. That is why the National Association of Student Councils published this booklet, the eighth in the New Directions for Student Councils series. The editors believe that the booklet is a useful compilation of noteworthy civic activities in selected secondary schools. Topics under consideration in the text include: (1) the importance of the activities program, (2) encouraging service, (3) promoting human relations, (4) fostering international understanding, and (5) contributing to intellectual development.
