After completing a survey of the teaching of sociology in the secondary schools I find that many teachers feel there is a need for the course on this level. Those who answered the survey questionnaire reveal that sociology is valuable because it helps the student to understand his personal problems and realise something of the problems of society. In practically all the schools contributing to the survey, sociology is a very popular course with the student because it lends discussions that appeal to his personal interests, the survey also reveals a need for textbooks, workbooks, reference material and other mechanical aids to help in presenting the subject.
