KIRKUS REVIEW

An indictment of city school systems, based on the shortcomings and failures as soon by a New York High School teacher. She discusses the inhibition and timidity that are turning students to fascism, nazism, prejudice, dishonesty, laziness, subterfug. She challenges the recognition of schools as a guiding factor in formative years; queries the soundness of vocational training; criticizes adoption of progressive programs without proper equipment; outlines possibilities through smaller groups, adequate work programs as developed in the ""Springfield Plan"".
