jYaso/t On Education 3Rs Not Enough In Changing World By LESLIE J. NASON Professor of Education, USC Are the schools trying to be all tilings to all people? Sometimes it sounds this way when the so-called "frills" of modern education are discussed. Among advocates of the "re turn to the 3-Rs' idea, n o t h i n ranks h i g h e than the non academic acth ity as a thing i distrust. Music7 drama, drive; education, teenage grooving, and most shop courses have had their share of bitter condemnation. But we live in a changing world. Most of the changes that 18 years, posed real problems for schools. Children who had given up and quit school after three or four years of fruitless effort were now held in place by the new laws. The schools at first held these children at grade level, or passed have brought non-academic subjects into our school curriculum.? from the first compulsory-attend- laws. These laws were, them to a higher grade only after they had mastered the work of | the grade. Soon it was common 1 1 to find broad age-spreads in the lower grades. One could hardly be surprised when 15-year-old third Bidders became quffe~a problem. Then the schools changed. They ijegan a policy of age promotion. At least it kept age groups together. It also took some of the emotional pressure off the unsuccessful student whose nose was being rubbed in his obvious failure. Other things were changing, too. ance themselves, the product of change in our society. The laws were designed at least as much to keep children out of the lalx>r markets ^as to increase their education. The drastic increase in the rate of change for our whole society dates from about the same time. Inventions and advancement in the fields of communications, technology and transportation ushered in a whole new age along with the 20th century. Changes in our schools changes. The laws simply reflect these which forced children to remain in school until they had either graduated from high school or reached some maximum age, which might vary from 14 to that made them available to teenagers, led to results you know about. Our lawmakers were bowing to public demand when they set up programs of driver education in the schools. Where are the 3Rs? They are still there, still filling the needs of students. The schools are designed to meet the demands of the community. They've changed, yes, but i' was the community that changec them. The schools will change still more, just how we can't be sure. But they will change—because we are still in a changing world. You may write Dr. Nason in care of this paper, though he will be able to discuss only questions of general interest in his column.

The world was changing and it. soon became obvious that many things which had been "good enough" were going to be "good enough" no longer. As the phonograph and radio brought good music within the reach of everyone, musical tastes changed. By public demand the music programs in the schools were improved and extended. As motion pictures began to give glimpses of newer, more glamorous ways of living, ways of living changed—radically! New standards of dress, housing, sanitation, diet, grooming and behavior crept across our land—and right into our schools.

For one thing, he's 86 years old. ' And he applies, after a fashion, a style of Kansas quail hunting to his venison forays. i Everitt's annual and successful deer hunting trips to Wyoming began in 1953 when he went there, in a routine he started in the '1930s, to fish for trout. He ar- i rived too late to fish, so he went i deer hunting. Each year since until last year he brought home a buck. Last year he came back with two doe. of the century although he did not get into serious competition until 1917. He started as a field trial break for lunch. He was 72 at the time. Last spring, in Bourbon County, he was in the saddle from 7 a.m until 6 p.m., judging all classes of a field trial with a half hour break for coffee and to stretch his legs. At the conclusion, a 30-year-old judging partner readily admitted he was bushed and almost fell off his horse in dismounting. Everitt look a brisk canter before turning his mount over to a handler.
