The American Schools Can Meet the New Demands They Are Facing.
Tyler, Ralph W.
The nation's schools face difficult problems that must be solved if they are to continue serving our society constructively and effectively. The two hundred years of our country's history demonstrate that in the past the schools have met new needs and have responded well to growing demands for education. An examination of several of the problems schools are now encountering finds bases for confidence regarding the future. The experience with Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act demonstrates that schools can, albeit slowly, devise new programs and new ways of working with disadvantaged children. A number of high schools have already worked out with various persons and agencies in their communities ways by which youth can work constructively with adults to render service, to obtain firsthand experience with the wider world, and to gain assurance that they are becoming responsible adults.
