Summary
"No matter how fine the school may be or how well trained the teachers, a large number of the children attending that school - too large a number - fail to do well. Without a radical change in school organization, and a similar change in social viewpoint, these children must continue failures in the acquirement of an adequate education for today. An analysis of the mental characteristics needed to do school work - a knowledge of which is still in its infancy - suggests that many types of educational procedure are impossible for some children. It may be necessary for a complete change of program to be made before the training needed for functioning in a changing society can be given. The suggestion is made in the following pages that a more intensive study of the capacities underlying the learning process may lead to changes both in methodology and content. The substitution of a different type of curriculum based upon the abilities of the children, may change the general educational plan. The dogma of yesterday becomes archaic today. Added leisure, as the shorter working day appears more imminent, the increase in use of labor-saving machinery in the home, greater mobility, and a new social viewpoint will surely force education to break away from custom and tradition"--Introduction.
