Programs of Study

by Helen Parkhurst - 1929

THIS address by Miss Parkhurst was given at the Conference on Elementary Schools, one of the Group Conferences held during the National Conference on Education which met at Teachers College, April 10 and 11, 1928. Dr. J. Cayce Morrison, Assistant Commissioner for Elementary Education of New York State, presided at this Meeting.—EDITOR. I AM particularly grateful to the chairman for giving me a topic to my liking, especially since the topic he has selected frames an idea which I have worked over for many years. I suddenly realize that I have never properly set forth this idea for want of an articulating and classifying topic. "Programs of Study" mean just what the words indicate. Suppose, for instance, he had given me "Curricula"—at the outset I should have been at a disadvantage and possibly misunderstood, because you know (or perhaps you don't) that it has been said that I am not interested in curriculum. May I digress sufficiently to explain this situation.
