This publication comes in answer to many requests for a brief study of forums which engage the interests of young people. It presents a summary of much material which has flowed into the Office of Education as a result of its sponsorship of community wide public forums. It is presented to educators and laymen in the hope that it will give valuable aid to the growing movement for vital discussion among young people. It is particularly prepared for teachers and supervisors of social studies, principals and superintendents in the high-school field, and professors of the social sciences and administrators of universities. It is hoped that this document will be pertinent to leaders of adult education in their task of organizing community efforts for out-of-school youth, and in utilizing the resources of high schools and colleges in providing interesting discussion opportunities for adults. The report on the High School Program of the Minneapolis Public Forum Project and the Discussion Method - Reading References are appended. (Individual chapters contain footnotes.)
