Do public schools in America actually operate as democratic institutions as fully sensitive to the needs and wishes of the people as well as they could? Do we have, inherent in the customs and practices of school administration, an organized education which is serving its public in only a part of its ability to serve? Education today is under fire of critics who disclaim the functions that the schools are now performing. How school people shall answer these critics is a challenge to educators.
