Degree Discipline



If freedom Is to endure, our schools must produce real citizens who know how to face and think through their own problems, not merely to follow a dictator; but who have faith In such democratic procedures as free discussion, expression of conviction through ballot; who recognize the responsibilities to their fellowmen; who will strive to bring to every nan freedom from fear and want, and freedom of speech and worship. Such individuals will possess the essential tools which enable men to function as producing members of American society.

Statement of the Problem

Our rich social heritage and the opportunities of our modern civilization must be made available to all children. Since every child is entitled to be educated to his fullest capacity, the problem of what can be done to the instructional program arose to give every boy and girl a chance, An attempt will be made to handle the following questions: Why are some children retarded? How can the retarded child be helped through the regular Instructions! program? What are the different levels of those children? What teaching materials should be Included In the program for these pupils? How can they be encouraged to stay In school? What procedures in teaching can be used to help these pupils to become better adjusted socially, emotionally, economically, spiritually, and Intellectually?
