KIRKUS REVIEW

Written specifically for parents by a former school principal, now a professor, this is an exposition of what the better schools are doing and why, and the way in which you as a parent can help to get your school put these practices into operation. Here you will see the progressive pattern as it has been integrated in the last 25 years; you will visit a modern school (the ideal modern school); its plant; its first grade on up through junior high; you will see what your child should be equipped to do, academically, and what the teachers now know through newer methods of teaching; the content of the school program; the measurements of progress; and the accessories, parent-teacher conferences, field trips, the school newspaper and store; and lastly what the parent can do to get a school such as this. A report which is based on considerable orientation in the elementary school field, and one which includes balance, realism and some humor.
