Origin of Problem

The writer became interested in the problem of curriculum reorganization of the Madlsonvllle school district because the present-day needs and interests of the children were being neglected. After studying other modern curriculums, the writer found that the one in this district was too traditional. There is a need for courses and extra-curricular activities that will better prepare the pupils for the occupations that they follow after completing their high school courses.

In this community, the citizens have their ideas, notions, and impressions of what the educational program should consist of, to a certain extent. They are measuring the efficiency of the pupils by their limited knowledge of things that they should know about. They are not too satisfied with the training that their children are getting in this district. They are taxpayers and should know something about the institutions if they are to Justify the tremendous investments in buildings, equipments, supplies, and salaries.

Now leaders like these with social vision, scientific methods, sound educational philosophy, and moral courage will face fearlessly the realities they encounter* They will help map policies and programs which will provide the best opportunities that available resources permit for all the children of all the people.
