Educational Foundations and Curriculum
Democratic practices in the school are based upon three fundamental purposes. These are: the developing of wholesome and well-adjusted personalities, the forming of habits of mutual helpfulness and cooperation and the furthering of conditions within the school which will encourage intelligent behavior of members of a democratic society. The purpose of this check list is to provide a means by which those engaged in the educational task may examine their practices to see if they square with what they profess to believe.
