It is recognized that the public school is designed to do more than develop academic competence.1 The school must also develop emotional and social maturity in its charges. If the public school fails to take cognizance of the importance of these latter two objectives, it will fail also in meeting some of the more important objectives of education. A recent report of the Educational Policies Commission of the National Education Association supports this viewpoint clearly.
