Science in the New Secondary School


by H. Emmett Brown 1934

There has been a disposition on the part of some curriculum makers to assume that since science has played such a dominant role in determining the character of our present civilization, it must occupy a position of similar importance in curriculum revisions. They therefore are likely to accept the present organization of science courses without much question. "Are the contributions of science to the scheme of secondary education sufficient to justify its continued inclusion?" and "Is the present organization of science courses worthy of perpetuation?" are questions that should not be answered by an a priori "Yes." In the present article, the author attempts to give a reasoned answer to these questions, particularly as they are applied to the physical sciences of the senior high school.
