I. Importance and Statement of the Problem
During the past fifty years secondary schools have made rapid advances both in enrollments and in the curriculum. In 1890 these schools were still the schools of the few, even though their enrollments had begun to grow rapidly. The high schools have continued their rapid growth until today today they present an extremely wide range of individual differences in such areas as interests, abilities and needs. Of the millions of students attending these schools today, probably six out of every seven will never attend college. It is thus apparent that our high schools must provide for both the students who do and those who do not plan to go to college.
