Whose Twilight?

by George S. Counts 1939

This journal has at various times been accused of "soft-pedaling" serious educational issues affecting the institution with which some of its prominent supporters are identified. In this article Professor Counts, the first editor of THE SOCIAL FRONTIER, meets these objections in full and calls upon the progressive teachers of the nation to resist all efforts of representatives of political sectarianism to seize the organizations that advanced liberals and honest radicals have built. We have been reluctant to issue such a statement because of the apparent aid and comfort such a stand might give to blind reactionary forces. This risk must nonetheless be run. Educators must learn to distinguish between spurious and genuine advocates of a socialized democracy if the integrity and scholarship of the teaching profession are to be maintained.
