Abstract

THE PROBLEM AND DEFINITION OF TERMS

For many years schools have been including student governments as part of the curriculum. For as many years a difference of opinion has existed regarding the relative effectiveness of the organization as a means of preventing behavior disorders and carrying out the main purpose of the school. Until recently the majority of informants viewed student government organizations with disapproval and in many instances denounced them as destructive and contrary to the purposes for which they were organized.

The statement most frequently made was that the "students get out of hand and think they are supposed to run the school." Hence, a hostility developed between teachers and students that did not exist previously.

In recent years psychology and the New Education, have lead the way for the development of favorable attitudes, understandings, appreciation, habits, and skills. Many of the reports show improved relationships, working organizations and desirable participation by both teachers and students.
