Abstract

The argument that the schools can do a great deal to direct and facilitate social change seems valid when we consider the school's sphere of influence. Today a million teachers are entrusted with the task of educating more than 25,000,000 pupils. For twelve years these millions of boys and girls are under the direction of school teachers--certainly no other professional or civic group has an opportunity of like magnitude. If the teaching group should effectively unite upon a comprehensive program its influence on social change would be considerable.
