How can the programs for children and youth in training schools for juvenile delinquents throughout the country be improved? The question has long been the concern of many training school administrators. In the spring of 1942, Dr. E. M. Dill, then president of the National Association of Training Schools, named a committee to cooperate with the U.S. Office of Education in compiling a report on the status of present educational programs, with recommendations for planning future developments. As a culmination of the committee's joint deliberations and planning with the Office of Education, this publication has been prepared. The publication is in two parts. The purpose of part I is four-fold: (1) To suggest fundamental principles and objectives of educational programs in the training schools; (2) to offer suggestions for vitalizing those programs as to scope and function; (3) to suggest relationships, and benefits derived from such relationships, with State departments of education and other educational agencies; and (4) to suggest ways and means of building better public relations. The purpose of part II is to offer to teachers and other staff members of training schools a basis for studying their own problems and for developing desirable changes in their educational programs. Accordingly, topics for discussion are outlined, questions raised for consideration by the study group, and references suggested to guide individual or group reading. Individual sections contain footnotes. [This bulletin was written in collaboration with Elise H. Martens and Katherine M. Cook. Best copy available has been provided.]
