This volume, the second in the series to be published in connection with the Iowa Secondary Cooperative Curriculum Program, presents the background for the course of study materials now in preparation. It reviews the development of secondary education, points out those influences which have modified and are continuing to modify the curriculum, describes the Iowa secondary school as it now is, reviews the opinions of Iowa teachers regarding needed changes, announces a philosophy for secondary education, and finally, proposes a design for secondary education in Iowa. It is hoped that this material will be useful to high school faculties in providing background for the use of the courses of study which are to follow. It should broaden teacher perspective with regard to the purposes of secondary education and the responsibilities of secondary schools to youth. It will provide a framework for building the curriculum and organizing the program of instruction.
