Preliminary Statements by Chairmen of Committees of the Commission of the National Education Association on the Reorganization of Secondary Education. Bulletin, 1913, No. 41. Whole Number 551
United States Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The whole problem of secondary education, both as to aims and as to methods, is now undergoing investigation. The demands for the readjustment of the work of the high school are insistent. This bureau has no specialists in secondary education and is unable to respond as it should to the many requests for information in regard to the trend of thought on this subject and for advice in regard to the organization and readjustment of high-school systems. It, therefore, welcomes all the more heartily the cooperation of the commission of the National Education Association on the reorganization of secondary education. This commission is attempting, as the first step in the more thorough study of the high school and its work, to collect the best opinion in this country in regard to the aims and methods that should prevail in secondary education. The accompanying manuscript consists of preliminary statements by the several chairmen of this commission. Their publication for distribution among principals and teachers of high schools and students of secondary education for their criticism will greatly facilitate the work of the commission. It is hoped that this commission will: (1) Formulate statements of the valid aims, efficient methods, and kinds of material whereby each subject may best serve the needs of high-school pupils; (2) Enable the experienced teacher to secure at the outset a correct point of view; (3) Place the needs of the high school before all agencies that are training teachers for positions in high schools; and (4) Secure college entrance recognition for courses that meet actual needs of high-school pupils. An index is provided. (Contains 2 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
