Education today is in process; it is changing and developing toward a more efficient and effective way of accomplishing an adjusted and an informed citizenry in America. Dogma of the past yields slowly to the new. Tradition, apathy and inertia on the part of patrons and educators alike coupled with higher costs of better methods form a discouragingly slow team at times. In the field of education as with McCormick's reaper, it is not enough to have a better method or a more efficient tool. The consumer must be sold on the idea. He must be educated to the new, and as the child learns by participating, so the parent must participate to understand the problems of the modern school.
