As the curtain rises on the great drama of youth, the American Public School System, recognizing the rights of the child as the first right of citizenship, faces one of the most imposing challenges that has been placed before the nation. If every child, wherever he lives, who and whatever he may be, is to be trained so that he may become an asset to society rather than a liability, the educational program must continue to seek new trends and take inventory in order that we might progress, less we become extinct.

Teacher-pupil promotion is comparatively new. Let us seek out its values if they exist, let us seek its weaknesses in order that our tomorrow's citizens might have a better advantage for a greater foundation on which to build a better citizenship for a tomorrow's world.

The problem of harnessing the energy of youth for the purpose of bringing about a better society in the country is a challenge to educational and social leadership.

The school's responsibility is to develop the whole child. According to the Educational Policy Commission, the objectives of a democracy are to build desirable attitudes, promote goodwill, bring about sympathetic understanding with individuals, train in development of self-realization, human relationships, economic efficiency, and civic responsibility for all races.
