KIRKUS REVIEW

The 9th yearbook of the John Dewey Society, which deals with basic principles and problems, taken from actual case histories and school records of intercultural education. For parents, youth leaders and teachers at work, this textbook is written by educators prominent in their fields. The subjects treated are parents and the contribution of family life to intercultural education, the primary teacher and her part in helping young children accept themselves and each other, the adult sponsored groups as they supplement the school, the junior high school teacher and experiments in promoting participation by school children in community life. In addition, the gang phenomena is discussed and explained with suggestions for re-directing gang delinquents. The high school is treated here in terms of the sources for a secondary curriculum, the attitudes and practices prevalent today, and suggested approaches to foster democratic human relations. In conclusion a typical school system as a whole is examined and from that the criteria defined for measuring democratic intercultural living in our schools. Double list for your Parents and Teachers section.
