KIRKUS REVIEW

A spirited, heated, substantiated attack against ""quackery"" -essentially progressivism- in our schools today. The accusation of the ""real needs"" curriculum's increasing prevalence over arithmetic, foreign languages, etc., broadens to degrees for unimportant subjects, the teacher's demand for immunity, the course-manufacturing at teacher's colleges, the philosophy of Kilpatrick. It concludes in an appeal to raise both educational standards and teachers' salaries.
