For a number of years now, parents, educators, and legislators have shown ·an increasing concern over the quality of education children in this country are receiving in our public schools. In 1974 the Sixth Annual Gallup Poll of Public Attitudes Toward Education found poor curriculum ranked ninth of the ten major problems then confronting the public schools (6:21). By 1977 poor curriculum had crept to the fifth position in the poll (5:34). Presently we hear of a "back to basics" movement suggesting t.hat the major emphasis of our schools should be placed in the reading, writing, and arithmetic areas.
