Curriculum and Instruction


The school is the special agency set up by society to guide and direct the learning experiences of children of the community. The home, also being an institution for learning, obviously is a major factor in determining the kinds of experiences to which children are exposed in life outside the school.

When educational activities are based upon the needs and interests of those for whom they are planned, generally satisfactory outcome of training experiences can be expected. Youth must acquire suitable understandings, ideals, and attitudes to carry forward work and progress along all fronts of knowledge and activity. The problems of accomplishing these desirable learning experiences in the existing schools, have been increasingly acute in recent decades.
