Abstract

Over half a century ago there began in the United States a movement to improve the academic instruction of early adolescents. Along with this attempted improvement of instruction, conscientious effort was exerted to encourage the retention of these "in between" youth in worthwhile educational pursuits. The junior high school was organized to cope with this problem because it was felt such an organization could better fulfill the social and educational needs of children and educational aspirations of society. One of the major concerns of the reorganization of schools involved the movement of students from grade to grade and school to school. The most desirable curriculum organization to accomplish this end became a major concern.
