The importance of English in the high school curriculum has long been recognized as evidenced by the fact that from six to eight credits in the subject is the usual minimum requirement for graduation. While there is no doubt much to be said about the variation in the subject matter taught in the many schools of the country, still the fundamental fact remains that English is important. This statement is made as a matter of fact, and may be questioned, but no attempt will be made to argue the case or prove its truth. The only reason for making the statement is to give some justification and importance to the problems to which solutions are here sought.
