Social Class in the High School Curriculum

by C. Arnold Anderson 1957

Teaching about social class may become increasingly common in American high school curricula. Articles dealing with the impact of social status on education are numerous. It is of interest that a carefully designed outline for a unit on social class was published some years ago. However, the moral and prudential arguments offered in support of this development contain serious logical flaws. Furthermore, a decision about curricula must be guided in major degree by substantive evidence as well as other criteria; the practicability of the proposal must be judged in the light of the availability of valid teaching materials suitable for presentation to immature pupils.
