KIRKUS REVIEW

By the Headmaster of Lawrenceville, thin in a discussion of the value of the private school and its educational objectives. A very fair appraisal of both the advantages and the shortcomings of the private school: the advantages in the freedom of selectivity of teachers and programs, of teaching smaller groups; the shortcomings in that admissions are based on the price paid, in the fear of the unorthodox, in the emphasis on social rather than intellectual . In the second part of the book there is an analysis of methods and material, of activities, of development of leadership, or behavior problems, and religion. A liberal and rewarding examination.
