The purpose of this study is to show that we are recognizing and learning ways to cope with the problem; namely: how to return the use of time, space, numbers, and content to those who need it--the teachers and their students--in even the larger schools that symbolize so well our concept of education for all youth. We are also learning how to cope with an equally important additional problem; how to treat a pupil as an individual even though he is one in a great mass of students. Solving these two problems constitutes the exciting challenge of our day. During this study we are going to take a look at what some schools are doing and what others need to do.
