A Small Circle of Friends: Clarence Kingsley and Membership on the Committee of the Commission on the Reorganization of Secondary Education.
Correia, Stephen T.
This paper chronicles the work of The Reviewing Committee of the Commission on the Reorganization of Secondary Education (CRSE) in 1918 and of its chair, Clarence Darwin Kingsley. The report draws parallels between the report issued by the CRSE and the GOALS 2000 report on current educational reform efforts. The study shows that membership on the CRSE may be traced directly to the member's association with Clarence Kingsley. Contrary to Kingsley's attempt to portray CRSE membership as reflecting the input of a wide variety of people, in reality the CRSE membership was chosen carefully to suit Kingsley. All were of a like mind concerning the need for the reformation of secondary education and had been involved in educational reform at state and local levels before their appointment to this national committee.
