With the growing interest and activity in secondary school curriculum revision programs in many parts of the United States, the need for evaluation of the present educational program grows proportionately. Increasing concern for the help secondary-school students receive in making adjustments while in school and in later life is a fundamental part of present-day curriculum planning.
During the past few years, educators of this country have become aware that boys and girls who were leaving school without finishing their formal education were creating a problem in the social and economic life of their communities.
Every year it is becoming increasingly difficult for a young man or woman to secure a position upon leaving school. Even after high school graduation, a youth is often refused employment, because he lacks those traits which a high school graduate might be expected to possess. Business establishments that were formerly* contented to use graduates from eighth grade, today will not consider a junior high school graduate unless he is exceptional in Kiaturity of judgment and social adequacy.
