KIRKUS REVIEW

The educational director of the Ethical Culture Schools of N.Y.C. contend with all and sundry on the issues and extremes of present day education -- with no concrete platform to offset save the importance of the ""free man's faith"" in democracy in practice. A criti and criticism of the St. Johns-ites, of vocational curricula with functional objectives, of the role of religion in the public school of deliberate indoctrination by the teacher, of the dangers of having communists or fascists as, educators. A conservatively liberal stand, which makes no new contribution, but analyses certain of the dangerheads extant today.
