The St. Louis Program of Curriculum-Revision

by Walter Dewey Cocking - 1927

In the spring of 1924 Superintendent John J. Maddox requested the principals of the St. Louis schools to state what they deemed to be the most pressing and urgent needs of the school system. By far the greater number of the replies indicated that the outstanding need was attention to the curriculum. Superintendent Maddox, therefore, immediately began to formulate plans looking to the complete revision of the curriculum of the public schools of St. Louis. He soon saw the necessity of having some member of his staff give full time to the work of outlining and directing the entire program. For this purpose, the writer was appointed as a member of the division of research, and the program of curriculum-revision was placed under his direction.
