The school can no longer wash its hands of its responsibility t o youth after formal school days are over. Such a procedure might have been somewhat acceptable in the school of the pioneer days. If so this at least certain. The school should not follow this blind pattern set by the school of past generations. When the student leaves school today, he should not be left to shift for himself with whatever success chance may bring.
The elementary and secondary schools of America are becoming more and more cognizant of their responsibility to youth after they have left school. The ending of the formal academic step does not, at least, should not sever the school's relationship with the student. This evaluation is being made whether the schools like it or not and the extent to which youth is able to adjust to adult life will determine the rating given to the work being done in our public schools.
