Implications of the Social Scene for the Education of Young Children


by Leah Levinger & Lois Barclay Murphy 1947

About two million babies are born in the United States each year.

Education is also concerned with the question of whether the cultural experiences of the present will prepare the children to solve such problems of the future as the prevention of war, the elimination of interracial conflict, and the amelioration of physical and mental disorders produced by the strains of modern life.
