by Departmental notes - 1920
A group of twenty-five principals of high schools in and near New York is meeting monthly for the third year with the department of secondary education for the discussion of problems of administration and supervision. At the first meeting this year Professor Briggs led a discussion of the question, "Should we expect our pupils to remember what they are taught?" At the second meeting Principal Alder, of the Adelphi Academy, and Principal Best, of the Plainfield, N. J., High School, told what their experience with the education of the American soldiers in France led them to believe should be done in reforming the secondary school. At the third meeting Mr. Raleigh Schorling, of the Lincoln School, led the discussion on "The New Program for Introductory Mathematics."
