Origin of the Problem

For more than a year this study was undertaken there was in the mind of the writer some agitation; there was uncertainly concerning the program of Cuney Elementary school; there was a questioning or disturbance or disturbance over the procedures used in the school.

As a result, there developed the challenge to study the situation, to appraise the school, to attempt to determine to what extent the program approximated the progressive criteria. The objective of the study are to determine what progressive procedures are, as advocated by accepted authorities; to determine, by a comparison of such procedures, wherein, if at all, the program of the school in question fails to meet the criteria set up by such authorities and to suggest improvements if it is found that improvements can be made.

Statement of problem

The writer is of the belief that pupils of traditional schools are not adequately prepared to meet and to solve the problems of life. The challenge has arisen in her mind to learn what progressive procedures are and to determine which of such procedures are applicable to the situation at Cuney School if it is found that the application of such procedures will be an improvement of the program of instruction in said school.
